In early June of this year, Madeleine C., Eleni J., and Rebecca J. (Class of 2013) travelled to St. Catharine’s, Ontario to compete in the Canadian Secondary Schools Rowing Association Regatta.
Normally racing with their club, Thunderbird Rowing, the girls competed under York House at this high school-only regatta. With well over one thousand rowers coming from across Canada and the United States, the girls raced very well amongst tough competition; Rebecca and Eleni advanced out of heats in their openweight double, while in the lightweight double (rowers weighing under 130lbs.), Madeleine and Rebecca just missed qualification by a devastating tenth of a second.
The girls found the regatta to be a valuable experience and were happy to race as York House School!
