Juniors overcome weather and the opposition
Published 14/04/14



HENLEY Rowing Club juniors travelled upriver on Sunday to compete in one of the last head races of the season.

At a busy Abingdon Spring Head, the juniors section of J13 and J14 crews battled against strong blustery gusts to race along the meandering 2,000m course.

In the J13 boys-coxed quad, Connor Brown, Jake Collins, Oliver Taylor, Jack Spiers and cox Joe Edwards beat crews from Bishop Vesey Grammar School and Falcon Rowing Club by some margin.

It was a first win for these boys in a style that bodes well for the future.

The J13 girls’ crew of Livvy Peterson, Jessica Arlett, Felicity Parfitt, Sophia Hann and cox Georgia Brown rowed in the J14 division owing to no other J13s entered and performed well, coming fifth overall, beating three J14 crews in the process.


In the J14 girls’ events, Lottie Orr and Tilly Lock competed in the double sculls.

Against strong wins on the final 1,000m, they sculled well in the conditions, and although they beat local rivals Maidenhead they came second overall to a very good Stratford crew.

In the WJ14 coxed quads, the A quad of Ruby Brown, Charlotte Moss, Lottie Orr, Tilly Lock and cox Maral Dharvind came second in a time of nine minutes.

The B quad of Ruby Brown, Caitlin Copland, Eve Poulter, Amelia Fielding Smith and cox Maral Dharvind competed in the second division later in the day to record a time of nine minutes 15 seconds, ensuring that Henley took fourth place.

In the Masters events, Henley entered a double in the G category and came fourth in a time of nine minutes 36 seconds.
