Ridley Rowers Show Well at Henley Regatta

Madison Leitch and Alison Whitty pulled off a late race charge to capture the Under 19 Womens Doubles Championship Friday evening at the Canadian Henley Regatta. The girls were comfortably in third place as they approached the Island, moved quickly through the Vancouver crew for 2nd as they passed the 1500 m pylon and finally chased down, then passed Victoria City from B.C. with about 200 metres to go. A few rough strokes as they neared the finish line added to the drama but the girls from Ridley would not be denied. 76 Crews from across North America started in this category and 1 was left standing to hoist the Thorne Family Trophy!

Connar Boyd ’12 and Austin Bald ’12 finished third in the Under 19 Men’s Pair final on Saturday.  Colin MacKay ’11 and Austin Bald ’12 placed third with their crew in the Under 19 Men’s Eight race on Sunday.
