After Glasgow Academy rowers cleared up the medals at the Scottish Rowing Championships (10 Gold, 3 Silver 1 Bronze), the girls' quad of Holly Wicklow, Holly Allan, Jennifer Olney and Louise Miller set their sights on qualifying for Henley Royal Regatta at the end of June, a first for Glasgow Academy Rowing Club girls.
Not only did they qualify, but Iain Somerside's team won their first race convincingly against Becket School 'A' in the Diamond Jubilee Cup. Unfortunately the girls came up against the experienced and much-fancied Headington School 'A' team in the next round who went off very fast, but the Glasgow girls clung on and did very well to end up only a length and a half behind by the finish.
An excellent result! Well done both to the girls and their coach!
