The Tasmanian Rowing Club Championships were held last weekend at Lake Barrington and the College was invited to participate.

Our senior girls obtained the best results by any Scotch Oakburn team in the history of the College winning:

U19 Women’s Eight
U19 Women’s Coxless Quad
U19 Women’s Single (Lindsay Calvert)
U19 Women’s Coxed Four
U19 Women’s Pair

They also narrowly missed a win in the U21 Women’s Eight.

The last time I can recall any school got close to winning this number of events at the State Championships was by the Scotch Oakburn boys in 2008 and 2018 where they took out three of the five events.  This was a significant achievement by our Senior girls and I congratulate them on their success.

In addition, our U17 Boys Coxed Quad and U17 Boys Coxed Four also won their events, taking our total event wins seven, the highest number of team wins at the event.
