Over the past weekend the rowing team attended the South Island Rowing Club Championships at Lake Ruataniwha in Twizel.
With a small team of rowers compared to other schools in attendance, Otago Boys' had a successful regatta, making 9 A finals and 5 B finals.
5 of the A finals converted to medals with the breakdown as follows:
Gold - Reuben Cook - Mens Club Single Sculls
Silver - Reuben Cook, Grayson Small, Will Haley, Alex McLachlan, Noah Lewis (cox) - Mens Under 19 Quadruple Sculls
Silver - Kaia Sheehy-Wikio - Mens Intermediate Single Sculls
Silver - Reuben Cook, Will Haley - Mens Club Double Sculls
Bronze - Niall Alexander, Archie Chittock, Ryan Egan, Charlie Tisdall, Rylan Nichol (cox) - Boys Under 15 Coxed Quadruple Sculls
The rowers now return to school and train hard towards the South Island Secondary School Championships in early March, and for those selected, the Aon Maadi Cup in late March, which will be held at Lake Karapiro in Cambridge this year.
Thanks to all the coaches and parents who assisted in making this such a successful weekend for our team.
