Six crews to compete on the Tideway

Six crews from the Cantabrigian Rowing Club and Hills Road Sixth Form College partnership will be heading to the Schools’ Head of the River Race tomorrow (Thursday, March 23).

The four eights and two quads will descend on London as part of a record 373 crews from across the country to do battle on the Tideway.

The Hills Road students are led by Cantabs’ volunteer coaches Andy Johnson, Leanne Fiddian, Dr Rachel Bryant Davies, Mike Hunter, Ollie Frazer and Gill Cooper, with the club also providing all the equipment.

“Entering six crews into the Schools’ Head is a major achievement, whatever the outcome,” said Ann Hemming, head of sport at Hills Road.

“The Cantabs/Hills partnership goes from strength to strength. The enthusiasm and commitment of the Cantabs coaches is unbelievable.

“They are inspirational, encouraging Hills Road students to set the bar high, on and off the water.

“The students also show an amazing ability to balance their academic and rowing commitments.

“Competing against some of the top schools in the country is testament to how far the rowers have progressed in a short period of time.”
