Ballarat Grammar was on fire today with their Schoolboy and Schoolgirl Coxed Four’s taking out the National Titles in their respective events on the final day of the Australian Rowing Championships in Perth.

The Victorians were clear victors in the Schoolgirl’s Coxed Four, maintaining an impressive lead from start to finish so secure the National Title in a time of 7:46.02.

 

The crew of Stella Fulton, Vicki Powell, Anna Fairbairn-Calvert, Sarah Mair and Clara Toohey have significantly raised the bar in the Schoolgirl division after putting forward an outstanding display that would have had their coach, Bill Gribble, beaming with pride.

 

PLC Perth’s Rebecca Duke, Jessamy Burton, Kate Mannolini, Emily Mantle and Elinor Scott took out the Silver medal with the Girls from Gennazzano sitting no more than half a boat length behind to claim the Bronze.  

 

In the Schoolboy Coxed Four, Campbell Gullock, Sam Ballantyne, Tom Hunt, Sebastian Walsh and Matthew Haberfield fought back from a slow start that saw them hunting the Scotch Oakburn crew of James Brient, Chrish Hughes, Samuel Francis, William Thompson and James Dixon-Douglas down the course.

 

With just 0.71 of a second separating the two crews in the final 500, Haberfield commanded his crew to surge in one last attempt to overpower their strong competitors, pushing them into the lead and over the line in first place to clock a time of 6:51.31.

 

Racing continues with the Open Club Double Scull’s.
