This terms Glasgow City Council Funded Glasgow Schools Indoor Rowing Competition was held at St Thomas Aquinas Secondary School on Tuesday 17th of March. The event which is organised by Scottish Rowing’s Glasgow Schools Rowing Project Co-ordinator Gerry Best was attended by 6 Schools and over 130 children entered the 9 individual events which ranged from J12 to the J16 2K and the very exciting team event.
Gold medals in the individual events were split between St Thomas Aquinas, Hillhead, Hermitage Academy and St Rochs, Silver medals went to St Thomas Aquinas and Hermitage Academy and Bronze medals were won by St Thomas Aquinas, Hillhead, Hermitage Academy and St Rochs.
Seven teams raced it out in the relay event and the trophy was eventually won by Hillhead High School whose team of 6 youngsters completed an impressive 1647m in the six minutes allowed just ahead of the team from Hermitage Academy with 1626m. The pupils left the highly competitive event “determined to train harder and strive to improve their performances in the future”. Huge thanks to St Thomas Aquinas Secondary School for hosting the event and to Glasgow City Council for their continued support of this highly successful project. The next event will be held in November……..
