Rowing / Wednesday, July 19, 2017 Two Gold medals at British Rowing Championships

The Glasgow Academy has had its most successful British Rowing Championships ever with our crews winning two Gold medals, one Silver and one Bronze. Special mention goes to the Girls J18 quad of Holly Wicklow, Louise Miller, Holly Allan and Jenny Olney who took their race by the scruff of the neck and took on Henley Rowing Club to take Gold.

In doing so, they reversed the decision of three years ago when The Glasgow Academy four of Wicklow, Rankin, Somerside and Neilson took Silver behind Henley RC in the same event.

Alex Milne continued to dominate the J16 field with commanding performances throughout the regatta and took a well-deserved Gold. Olney and Wicklow also took Silver in the Girls J18 pairs and Kitcher and Colley Bronze in the Girls J16 pairs.

Very well done to all our rowers who took part.
