Sam Shaw qualified for the repechage in under 16 single scull after finishing fifth in his heat at this week’s Maadi Cup competitions at Lake Karapiro.

The Te Awamutu College student featured on the front page of last week’s News as one of three college students competing at the national event.

Katie Dale and Keita Koroheke, who competed in the double scull, were eliminated in the heats.

St Peter’s Cambridge saw three boats qualify for A finals – U15 Boys Double, U15 Girls Octuple and U17 Boys Quad.

Megan Glenn, Assistant Director of Rowing at the school, said racing conditions had been good with little to no wind, with any wind being a helpful tail breeze.

The school has also qualified 10 boats into the semi-finals to be raced today and a further 17 boats raced in repechages yesterday.

Cambridge High School have also had an exciting start to the regatta with six crews winning their heats and securing a position in a semi-final.

These crews included the Boys U18 double, the Girls U17 coxed quad, the Girls U17 single, the Girls U16 single, the Girls U15 coxed quad and the Girls U15 double.

Fifteen other crews progressed through to a repechage.

Finals will be raced today.
