TEN members of the Shiplake Vikings junior squad journeyed to East London for the Lea
TEN members of the Shiplake Vikings junior squad journeyed to East London for the Lea Regatta on Sunday, and all returned home victorious.
Eleanor Blois-Brooke won the junior 15 singles event. She was later joined by her crew-mates Katie Jackson, Emillie Jackson, Georgia Wornham and Eleanor Lee where they won the quad event for the same age group.
Meanwhile, Rhian Edwards and Libby Gordon proved themselves more than a match for the adult scullers by winning in their double.
Brother and sister, Alex and Ellie Smith, comfortably won singles events in age categories above their own whilst Henry Blois-Brooke finished the day off, in style, by winning the competitive IM2 men’s single event.
Head coach, Richard Berkley, said that these results are testament to the hard work the juniors have put in through the summer.
