The 2017 Maadi Cup squad are reaping the benefits of their huge training commitments by coming home from the South Island Secondary Schools regatta with three podium finishes.

The Under 16 squad made up of Sam Moore, Thomas Ryan, Jack Spinks, Michael Manson and coxswain, Tate Drummond won a silver medal after narrowly losing to Marlborough Boys, who they had beaten at a previous regatta. Thomas Ryan and Sam Moore went on to then win bronze in their Under 16 double. To finish the day off nicely the Under 15 Octable won Bronze with a nail biting finish. Mitchell Duncan, Angus Hewett, Peter Keenan, Peter Rowe, Harrison Ryan, Riley Thompson, Jack Webber, Thomas Young and Freddie Pankhurst were jubilant in their victory. 

With two weeks to go until they travel to Lake Karapiro and do it all again, the training continues! Good luck for a successful regatta and congratulations to Jamie McKenzie, Head Coach on successes to date.
