Impressive Henley juniors to represent GB in France
TEN members of Henley Rowing Club’s top performing junior women’s squad have been selected for the Great Britain J16 squad following a series of time trial events last weekend.
The Henley club was represented with both junior women’s and junior men’s crews attending the trials to compete at the annual J16 regatta against France later this month.
Racing over a series of 1,500-metre time trials, the Henley squad had to battle against a competitive field and changing weather conditions to gain their first representative honours.
Despite a valiant performance, the junior men’s quad lost out to the faster boats from High Wycombe Royal Grammar School, Claires Court School BC, and Windsor Boys’ School.
The junior women’s quad of Lauren Edwards, Maddie Orr, Ellie Thompson and Hattie Orr were involved in a major upset when they suffered their first defeat in two seasons to a slightly faster crew from Headington School.
