The MAGS Rowing squad continued to go from strength to strength in securing 11 final positions at the Maadi Cup NZSS Rowing Championships at Lake Karapiro from 27 March-2 April.
MAGS crews lined up in three A Finals and eight B Finals, up on our tally of two As and four Bs in 2016, at what is one of the largest high school sporting events in the southern hemisphere. More than 2000 students from over 120 schools took part.
The Under 16 Boys Four and Under 15 Boys Four won their B Finals, while another Under 15 Boys Four came a creditable 5th in the A Final. Our Under 15 Eight and Under 16 Eight also made A finals. Two or our girls' crews made B finals, finishing among the top 13 in the country.
Headmaster Mr Patrick Drumm attended the two finals days of this prestigious event, and said the positive attitude among the squad and support crew was impressive. "Our success in the younger age groups gives us an encouraging platform to build on for the future," said Mr Drumm.
