The water trial on Sunday 25th November was unfortunately cancelled but several Wallingford members took part in the scheduled 2k erg test on Saturday in Boston, Lincolnshire. In the women’s lightweight category Wallingford had the 2nd, 3rd and 4th fastest times from Kathryn Twyman, Ellie Piggott and Brianna Stubbs. Several other Wallingford members also made the required cut-off so will progress through to the next set of trials in February.

 

Wallingford Rowing Club's women's junior quad took one of the top honours this weekend at the seventh annual Oxfordshire Sports Awards, held at the Kassam Stadium in Oxford. After a year of incredible sporting achievements, nominations were plenty and competition was fierce at this year’s ceremony with entries from a huge range of sports. Wallingford’s junior girl’s quad made it into the finals after a fantastic year of consistent achievements; remaining undefeated at a local, national and international level whilst balancing training with their GCSEs and contributing overall to the club.

The quad consisting of Hannah Whelan, Freya Dale, Leanne Reeves and Alice Walker, beat Banbury U13 Girls Cricket Team and Team Cherwell Junior Triathlon Team to win Junior Sports team of the Year. The girls have had great success at local rowing events but also went onto win six key national and international events including National Schools Regatta, Henley Women’s Regatta and GB v. France match. Other rowers who joined them on the winners’ podium were 2012 Olympic gold medallist Andy Triggs-Hodge and cox to the 2012 Paralympic Gold LTA mixed four, Lily van der Broecke who won Sportsman and Sportswoman of the year respectively.

 

 

Wallingford entered three women’s quads this year and came away with the pennant for fastest women’s elite lightweight quad with a comfortable margin of 20s over the next lightweight crew. The WIM1 4x also performed well despite several last minute substitutions and finished just inside the top 200. The WJ4x put in a solid performance racing several age categories up in a packed event.

Winning crews
W.ELI.Lwt.4x Brianna Stubbs, Kathryn Twyman, Tina Thomas, Caroline Greves

 

This weekend saw the Diamond Jubilee Rowing Championships taking place at Eton Dorney, and with members of Team GB’s London 2012 rowing squad returning to race in their club colours, competition was tough. Wallingford Rowing Club rose to the challenge winning two pennants for the fastest lightweight crews and also taking home two silver medals. On Saturday Lottie Burgess and Kathryn Twyman raced in the Women's doubles, winning a silver medal by finishing second overall and taking the pennant for fastest lightweight crew in a closely fought race. On Sunday they were joined by Brianna Stubbs and Caroline Greves to race in the Women's Quads. After a strong performance in the time trial and semi-finals, the crew went on to push the winning heavyweight Leander crew to less than a length margin, taking the silver medal and pennant for fastest lightweight crew. Off the water, Wallingford Rowing Club's Alice Walker took part helping out on the Young Person's Panel (YPP) and some of her work included interviewing Olympic coach Jurgen Grobler and rowers Greg Searle and Pete Reed.
