Thomians reign supreme - 25th Rowing Nationals

By Harry Jayachandra

S. Thomas’ College Mount Lavinia won several events at the 25th Rowing Nationals which ended at the Bolgoda Lake yesterday.

The change of venue from the Colombo Rowing Club to Bolgoda did not seem to tire the Thomians.
Some of the events they won included the coxless open fours where they pushed Sri Lanka Air Force into second place. The Thomian crew finished in a time of 7.22. They also won the Under 19 double scull event in a time of 8.18. Their crew raced ahead of traditional rivals Royal College in the 4+ Under 19 boys event. Royal somehow got their revenge in the Under 16, 4+ event. The open double scull event was also won by S. Thomas’ as well as a number of other events such as the Under 19 coxless pair, coxless open, under 16 single sculler open single scull to name a few.

Bishops College won the single open scull for women. Musaeus won the schoolgirls single scull while Asian International bagged the under 16 single scull for women.

As expected Ladies College won the single scull and they outrowed Bishops in the coxless open pair event. Ladies College also won the Under 16 coxless pair event and the Under 19 double sculls and open double scull events while Museus won the coxless under 19 pair event. Bishops College won the under 16 Double sculls while Ladies won the under 16 cox fours and Musaeus prevailed in the open cox fours and the University of Colombo won the over 19 cox fours.
