What a fantastic weekend at Brentwood International College Regatta!
ORU JUNIORS were able to medal in 8 events. Started off with a bronze medal in the Under 19 4x+ of Gus, Simon, Norman, and Ari coxed by Max S.
Special congratulations to our Under 17 Novice Women 4x+ of Sarah, Sophia, Lauren and Rachel, coxed by Ruby for winning a GOLD. Their coxswain Ruby, took full responsibility for the boat, motivated the girls, and controlled the race with her heart and soul.
Shortly after that, our Under 17 Men 4x+ of Gus, Keenen, Max and Will, coxed by Max S won a silver medal. Another silver medal, this time for our Under19 JV Men 2x Liam and Ivan, and a bronze medal for our Under19 JV Women 2x Desi and Milla. So proud of these boys and girls! They had some very close racing this weekend.
We are pleased with Gus and Simon for placing second in their Under 19 Men 2x event. A stellar performance by our ORU Under 17 Men 2x, Keenen and Max Z. who had a very strong race and finished third. And finally, compliments to our Under 19 Lwt72 Men 4+ crew (Liam, Ari, Ian, and Ivan) for winning bronze. Their Coxswain Max S. ensured his crew had plenty in the tank to finish this race strong. Please don't ever stop doing the incredible job that you do!
We are also very delighted with our Under 17 Novice Men 4x+ crew of Shep, Christopher, Adley and Henry. Those fit novice boys had 3-4 very incredibly emotional races in one day. A special congratulations to their coxswain Calvin! His energy and ability to handle stress were incredible. We cherish his determination!
Congratulations to our rowers on their historic achievement during this truly amazing weekend! They all have the physical and psychological gifts needed to be great rowers!
