Old Ridleian Colin MacKay ’11 and current student Austin Bald ’12 along with Aaron Kirkey, Matthew Finley and rowing cox Simone Pitre came away with the Al Ward Memorial Trophy last night in the Under 19 Men’s Cox Four at the Henley Regatta.
Congratulations to the crew!
Representing the Ridley Graduate Boat Club, Alison Whitty and Madison Leitch won the Ontario Under 19 Doubles Rowing Championship on Sunday in Welland, Ontario. This was particularly impressive given it was their first year in this category. Congratulations to Coaches Nancy Storrs and Allison Carryer and the girls! Next up, the Royal Canadian Henley Regatta in St. Catharines during the first week of August where they will do battle with some of North Americas finest crews. Well done ladies!
