Western Cape Rowing Champs

7 February 2019

Western Champs This year the organisers decided on holding Western Cape champs over two days instead of the usual one day. Although a long time to be away, the boys made the most of it. Bishops came away with many wins and respectful finishes with some tight and exciting races taking place. The results are as follows: • 14 A double: 1st • 1st sculls: First-> Nic McAdam • U15A Octupal: 3rd (first 3 spots were separated by 3 seconds) • U16A Coxless four: 1st • U16A Coxed four: 2nd; 4th and 5th • 1st Coxed four: First • 1st Coxless four: First • U14A Octupal: 3rd • U16B Pairs: 1st, 2nd and 3rd • U15A Quad: 1st • 1st Pairs: 1st;2nd;3rd;4th and 5th • U14A quad: 3rd • U16A eight: 1st and 3rd • 1st Eight: First Most notable is the fact that the open age group did not lose a single race to another school over the course of the weekend. Well done to all the boys who participated and who showed great resolve and spirit in supporting each other as well as showing great camaraderie with the other schools. Good luck to all the crews on their preparation for the Buffalo regatta and the South African Junior Championships over the next 3 weeks.
