|An Historic Season Comes To A Close For The Senior Boys Quad In England|
Our Senior Men's Quad fell to the giant slaying Windsor Boys' School this afternoon on the Thames to end what has been one of the most incredible Ridley Rowing journeys of the last two decades. Stotesbury Champions, American Scholastic Champions, double gold medalists at the Canadian National Championships and now a semifinal finish in the Fawley Challenge Cup in England. What a run. Thank you Tigers!
|Girls Quad Falls To English Champ At Henley Royal Regatta|
A solid effort was put in by our Junior Women's quad racing in the Diamond Jubilee Challenge Cup this morning at Henley Royal Regatta. Ridley drew the number one ranked Marlow Rowing Club in our first quarter final race. Off the start the two boats were relatively even for the first 15 strokes, after which Marlow took a slight lead. Just past Temple Island, Ridley had a bad stroke in the rough water, catching a crab, which saw them drop back by 2 lengths. With a quick recovery, and in windy conditions, Ridley held a 34 the rest of the way down the course trying to close the gap, but Marlow maintained their lead through to the finish. Coaches and parents are proud of this crew in qualifying and representing Ridley at this prestigious regatta.
