recently at Nottingham University.

12 rowers took part in the individual races and all performed exceptionally well. Star performance came from 11-year old Archie Sootheran, who became British Boys 11 and Under Champion in the J11 class. Also on the podium were Aimee Parker who took silver in the Girls J14 class and Rohan Khosla who pipped schoolmate Michael Heys for the bronze in the J13 class.

Back in Peterborough, 26 rowers from Years 6 to 13 who have represented the School throughout the 2011/12 Indoor Rowing League, completed a grand slam of titles after the last match. Having dominated the League all season, they were crowned District Champions as well as taking the best overall average percentage, the best top five percentage, the best top three percentage, all three overall top performers and the top three improvers.

Team Captain, Daniel Boyle (Year 13), was the top individual rower over the series of matches, Aimee Parker (Year 9) was in second place and George Kelsall (Year 7) was third. The top three improvers over the season were named as Simon Heath, Sophie Leggott and Philippa King.

Angie Axe, PE Teacher and Rowing Co-ordinator at the School was clearly delighted with the end of season success: “Our key strength is usually in relay events, which is why we were so strong in the District League, so we were absolutely over the moon to see Archie win and all the others perform so brilliantly in individual races at the National Championships. The commitment everyone has shown over the whole season has been outstanding; they all work extremely hard week in, week out and I’m very pleased it has paid off”.
