FOLLOWING on from their win at the Great Britain versus France regatta, Henley Rowing Club junior women’s squad was on representative duty again at the 52nd Home International Regatta in Cork on Saturday.
Two weeks previously, the Henley junior women’s four had battled against Glasgow Academy at the British Junior Championships winning by 0.27 seconds, with Aberdeen Schools finishing a close third.
Last weekend saw the Henley and Aberdeen crews face each other again, this time representing England and Scotland respectively in the junior women’s coxless fours event.
The Henley four of Ella Morgan, Kryssie Steiger, Alexis Perkins and Emily Pimlott represented England.
From the start, it was clear that this race was going to be another fierce battle between the English and Scottish crews. The two adversaries left the Welsh and Irish crews well behind them in the first third of the race.
