Clean sweep for Henley at Bedford

Clean sweep for Henley at Bedford
THE junior women’s squad of Henley Rowing Club won all six out of six events they entered at Bedford Regatta on Saturday.

The WJ14 squad entered coxed quads in both the first and second boat divisions and triumphed in each.

The first boat of Ruby Brown, Georgina Robinson Ranger, Lottie Orr, Issy Jonsson and Gemma Sarney as cox defeated Bedford Modern School and Kingston Grammar School in the first two rounds before overcoming Hinksey Sculling School in the final.

The second boat of Amelia Fielding Smith, Tilly Lock, Charlotte Moss, Eve Poulter and Ellie Crook secured wins over Bedford Girls’ School and Great Marlow School to secure victory.

The women’s junior coxed four of Ciara Buckley, Kryssie Steiger, Alexis Perkins, Emily Pimlott and cox Emma Lister stormed through their opening round against King’s School Chester with an emphatic win to start their campaign. Their four minutes and 40 seconds time in the opening heat was improved by 25 seconds in their second heat win against Bedford Girls’ School to take them into a final against a second Bedford Girls’ School crew. The Henley coxed four, who have commanded this boat class at races throughout the season, took an early lead in the final and held Bedford off their stern for the entire race to win by more than a length.
