St Mary’s College rowers continued their dominance at the Tasmanian Schools Rowing Championships held at Lake Barrington last weekend (March 3-4).

Held under sunny skies, the event, which is the highlight of the school rowing calendar, saw the College claim the U13 Double shield (Lizzie Monks and Bellah Parker) and U15 Doubles shield (Phoebe Teale and Sarah Haas) – a phenomenal result!

Adding to the medal tally, our girls finished second in the Junior Aggregate and third in the Senior Aggregate, with a number of rowers making their way through to the finals. A very commendable performance by all. Well done, SMC!
