The Schools' rowing season culminated in the MAADI CUP held at Lake Karapiro last term.
Grace Carver competed in the Girls U16 and U17 Singles. In the U16’s Grace managed to get into a repecharge on the second day and achieved a personal best however she missed qualifying for the finals by a small margin.
The U17’s race proved to be too fast for such a young competitor. The calibre of the competitors at this regatta is huge with the winners of the finals most probably ending up representing New Zealand. Grace has worked hard on her training at Bay Coast Rowing Club all summer. The club is based on the banks of the Wairoa River with Katikati College, Otumoetai College and Bethlehem College all training together.
We would love to host some more Katikati College students so if you are interested you should get in touch with Bay Coast Rowing or the Sports Coordinator. The new season will start in September.
