Shiplake pupils impress

SIX Shiplake College rowers took part in the GB Rowing Trials last weekend.

SIX Shiplake College rowers took part in the GB Rowing Trials last weekend.

Daniel Barrett, Michael Glover, Max Hearnden, Marek Lapham, Dominic Parnell and Harry Vardigans headed for the bitterly cold waters hosting the GB Rowing Trials in Boston, Lincolnshire.

On the Saturday the top pair from Shiplake was Vardigans and Lapham as they finished eight out of 44 boats over the 5km course. Glover and Lapham were not far behind finishing 14th.

The Sunday of the trials saw the boys change partners and quickly have to form an alliance with a rower from another school.

Results were not quite as successful as Saturday with Lapham producing the best result coming in 20th.

With most of the Shiplake oarsmen finishing in the 20s they will still hope for an invite to the next test in the GB selection process, the Spring Assessment.
