Primary Indoor Rowing Championships

360 keen athletes took to the Rowing machines in an all to play for race to be crowned the top school for their category.

First up we had the individual girls and boys races with four people rowing from each school. The races were split into Minor, Inter and Major based on the amount of students on role.

There was some very close races with some finishes being just a few meters apart!

When the teams weren’t having a go on our taster cycling and dance sessions, they were supporting their team mates in the main hall; raising the roof!

After the individual races, it was time for the loudest and most tactical; Team races. Each school had four boys and four girls who rotated every 30 seconds to see who could row the furthest. This was by far the loudest event and all the teams worked hard, focusing on their technique to change quickly.

After all the races finished, the results were in:

For the Minor schools:

1st- Wembury

2nd- Widewell

3rd- Plympton St Maurice


1st- Old Priory

2nd- Oreston

3rd- Bickleigh Down


1st- Montpelier

2nd-Glen Park

3rd- Elburton Team 1

A massive well done to all the teams that competed and thank you to the Sports Leaders from City College for all their support on the day.
