Youngsters earn precious metal haul

Two silver and two bronze medals were earned by Cantabrigian Rowing Club youngsters at the Peterborough Junior Championships.

Competing on the nationally-acclaimed rowing lake, they were up against strong competition from clubs and schools across the country on the 1,000m course, with 436 boats entered into the regatta.

It meant that there were 155 races in total, and Cantabs juniors had 18 crews in action.

Paolo Cicolecchia, Theo Seamon, Oscar Coppins, Max Casciato and cox Joshua Pearson put in a powerful performance in the J13A coxed quad to win silver to Maidstone in 4min 27.2sec.

In the J13A double sculls, Casciato and Cicolecchia beat Seamon and Coppins to silver by 6.2sec, in 4.30.4.

And there was a bronze medal for Tom Sharrock and Arthur Poole in the J14B 2x final in 4.12.3.

Cantabs’ junior development officer Gary O’Shea, was extremely pleased with the crews’ performances.

He said: “Up against strong local and national clubs the squad showed they can gain medals and compete with the best across the region.

“All our juniors performed very well and learned some valuable lessons in racing on this purpose built rowing lake so close to home.”
