Rowing – Head of the River 2019

The St Hilda’s BSRA rowing season ended in phenomenal fashion after dominating the Head of River regatta at Wyaralong Dam. The outstanding efforts by all girls saw the St Hilda’s win the Aggregate Cup for the first time in our rowing history. After accumulating the most points out of all the competing schools, the unprecedented win put St Hilda’s rowing on the table as a force to be reckoned with for upcoming years.

The day started on a promising note with almost perfect conditions and an enthusiastic group of spectators supporting the girls. The success of the regatta began with the Year 8s obtaining five wins and taking out their age group as Regatta Champions. The quality of these results was further amplified by the Year 9s and 10s being named overall champions of their age groups. The Seniors concluded the day, achieving third overall in a very challenging field of boats. Girls raced with great determination and effort, and this regatta will remain moment in St Hilda’s history that all girls are proud to say they were a part of.

The quality of rowing displayed by the girls this season has far exceeded our expectations and ultimately reflects their devoted attitude to the sport. There is no denying that rowing is an activity that comes with many challenges. However, the persistence displayed in the early mornings, gruelling sessions and long camps facilitated the history-making results.

The Ammonite Dinner which followed the regatta was an excellent way to celebrate the success of the rowing season and thank all those involved in making our love of rowing a reality. Although it is the girls that make up the sport, the parents, coaches, supporters, and of course Adam, our Head of Rowing, form the backbone of our success. The countless hours they devoted to rowing fuels the girls, the program and is endlessly appreciated.

As we conclude the 2019 Rowing season, a massive congratulations must go out to all our rowers. We hoped you enjoyed the season and are eager to return to the sport. The results this year have created an amazing platform for the future of St Hilda’s rowing, and we wish nothing but the best of luck to everyone involved in the upcoming years.

Dayna Gosper & Yasmin Nasser – Rowing Captains

The St Hilda’s Sport team loves to be kept up to date with our girls’ achievements across a wide range of sports. Please email sport@sthildas.qld.edu.au with any sporting news that we can recognise and celebrate!
