GB v France Match in Valenciennes

ASRA at Valenciennes As result of their success at the GB Under 16 Junior Trials on Wednesday 9th July at the National Watersports Centre, Nottingham, four girls from the Aberdeen Schools Rowing Association represented Great Britain at the annual GB v France Match in Valenciennes on Sunday 13th July. Rowing with girls from the prestigious Lady Eleanor Holles School, London, Rosie Morton (Robert Gordon's College), Catriona Bain (Aberdeen Grammar School), Iona Riley (Hazlehead Academy) and Jamie Steel (Harlaw Academy) made up the stroke four in the GB Eight. On the day, the ASRA/LEH composite put up a magnificent performance, rowing stroke for stroke with the French Eight for most of the 1500 metres. They faded however in the last 200 metres sprint to the line and ended up three quarters of a length down on the French in the end. The next time the ASRA quartet will meet up with their erstwhile GB teammates from LEH will be in the heats of the WJ16 Coxed Fours at the National Rowing Championships of Great Britain in Nottingham on Friday!
