REFEREEING

This weekend Jade Lawson participated in Zando Cape Town 10s as an AR (Assistant Referee). She had the privilege of being able to AR in the Cup Final which is often all done by the senior referees. This honour was given to her purely based on her performances and duties fulfilled during the tournament. Congratulations, Jade.

ROWING

Once again, the RGHS girls performed beyond expectations with their club, Peninsula Girls’ Rowing Club.

The junior ladies eight and four (with Amber Wilson and Morgan Prins) beat not only Somerset College, but also UCT, in the most closely contested races of the regatta. Kirsten MacArthur won the U16 singles, and her crew won their quad race. In the U15 age group, Amy Basson and crew in the U15 quad were placed first. Together with Danielle Henry, they were narrowly beaten in the U15 double.

Pictured below are most of the PGRC girls with the Junior Women’s 1st Four trophy, Amy Basson, Morgan Prins, Amber Wilson, and Kirsten MacArthur (Danielle Henry is missing from the picture).

We wish the U15 girls all the best for the upcoming Buffalo Regatta in East London from 14-16 February.
