Report on JIRR from Pauline Higgins, Team Manager:


I just want to say first a huge thank you to all of the coaches who gave up their weekend to support those athletes who were chosen to represent the Northern Region. Please can you pass on my thanks and congratulations to all of those involved especially all those who won medals.


I would also like to thank the Northern Rowing Council for its support for our juniors to attend the Regatta. The cost of entries and sweatshirts amounts to just over £3000; this is paid for with profits from the LDS series.


We won 8 medals in total as follows:


Silver: J15 1x DARC (Jonny Cleugh)

Silver: WJ14 1x CSN (Elyssa Stoker)

Silver: WJ16 4- TYNE (Izzy Johnson, Isla Dalby, Isla Temple, Moira Shiel-Diego)

Bronze: J14 1x HEX (Ethan Thompson)

Bronze: J16 2x DUS (Jannik Fachat, Nikkels Pieper)

Bronze: WJ15 4x+ HEX (Cassie Anderson, Isabel Cain, Emma Nicholson, Esme Pugh and Lily Teague)

Bronze: J15 4x+ HEX (Jacob Lloyd, Finn Condren, Joseph Gaskins, Daniel Cantwell and Hester Lockey)

Bronze: J14 4x+ DARC/DUS (Alex Lowes, Quinn Mosley, Alec Thompson, Jason Wrack and Georgia Curry)


Despite the record medal haul the team only accrued 139 points placing the Northern Region in 8th place, a big drop from 4th place last year.  


I am sure you all kept track of your own crew's times and placings but if you are interested in results for the team see the spreadsheet with times/placings from both heats and finals here - pdf or xlsx. Geoff  took photos of all the medal winners and has put together a poster as above, also on Facebook.
