Back-to-back rowing wins

Posted on 19 March 2020



For the second year in a row, Churchie secured the Old Boys' Cup at Head of the River on Saturday 14 March at Lake Wyaralong. 

The Old Boys’ Cup is awarded to the school that accumulates the most points across 12 racing divisions. This success reflects the depth and spirit of the Churchie Rowing programme.

All rowers put in strong performances at what was Churchie's one-hundredth year of rowing at Head of the River:

  • Of the 10 divisions, our Year 9s attained eight podium finishes.
  • Year 10 quads won six of the 10 divisions.
  • Year 11 Second, Third and Fourth VIIIs won their respective races, with the Year 11 First VIII missing out on first place by less than two seconds.
  • Our Open Third and Fourth VIIIs won their races, with the Second and First VIII finishing third and fourth, respectively.
