Successes celebrated at rowing awards night
St Mary’s College and St Virgil’s College rowers capped off a stellar season with their annual rowing awards dinner held last Saturday 17 June.
The evening was a wonderful opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate the success and achievements of all rowers and coxes involved with the club this year and included the presentation of the 2023 rowing awards.
The College is thrilled to congratulate Sarah Thomas (Year 9), who was named the joint recipient of the prestigious Saints Rowing Excellence Award (Weisse Family Trophy), which is presented to rowers from the Saints Rowing Club who have achieved a high degree of excellence in the sport.
