On Saturday 29th September the QPHS squad travelled to Runcorn Rowing Club to compete against some of the top rowing clubs around the North West. Tackling distances of 2250 and 4500m, the rowers showed their resolve, determination and power as they all ranked in the top three in their races. 

The club had wins for:

  •  J13 single - Luke Harris
  •  Women's J14 coxed quad - Darcy Smyth, Claudia Jackson, Lowri Jones, Emily McDermott and cox Iestyn Burke
  •  Women's J14 double - Darcy Smyth and Claudia Jackson
  •  J16 coxless quad - Ben Baker, Dan Williams, Charlie Doyle and Ioan Gwenter
  • J15 coxed quad - Josh Halewood, Iestyn Burke, James Cox, Dylan Howard and cox Josh Williamson.

All other QPHS rowers were successful in being placed either second or third for each of their races. Congratulations to all involved; this is a fantastic start to the season.
