Our First VIII had success last weekend defeating PAC to win the State Championships – congratulations to all boys for their dedication and hard word; their commitment in and out of the water should be commended.
All boys should be looking forward to the Head of the River on 17 March at West Lakes. Also, congratulations to the Swim Captain, Jack K, who broke four records at our Saints Swimming Carnival, to be awarded the Open Swimming Champion of the School.
