18 from 18 at St. Dunstans - 26th September

Okay so it wasn't quite a clean sweep but with many of Team Bishop Bavin sporting more medals than Colonel Gaddafi you could have fooled us !!

Congratulations to our junior crews who took part in Saturday's regatta at Roodeplaat. In hot conditions they demonstrated that they will be a force to be reckoned with come the provincial championships at the end of October.

Team Bishop Bavin entered 18 events and came away with 18 medals.

Medal positions were won in all 8 of the "A" events entered which is an outstanding achievement. The medal tally included 6 Golds, 3 Silvers and 2 Bronze.

Those of you who attended the first regatta will have seen how our novice crews performed and it was therefore pleasing to see them show further improvement by picking up medal positions in 6 of the 10 events entered.
The tally included 3 firsts, 1 second and 2 thirds.

More pleasing is the fact that the times recorded for these crews shows that they are bridging the gap with crews in "A" events. Congratulations to all our novices and the coaching team.
