Success for Hartpury rowers following weeks of wet weather

Success for Hartpury rowers following weeks of wet weather

Six Hartpury students have progressed to the next stage of the GB Junior selection trials following weeks of wet weather which had hampered their training schedule.

With opportunities limited since the turn of the year, three girls and three boys produced top twenty performances to ensure they moved forward into the next stage of the selection process.

Gloucester Hartpury AASE student Flo Pickles (3rd), Charlotte Hodgkins-Byrne (6th) and Alice Bowyer (14th) will be joined by Jack Williams and Joe Barnes (tied 4th) and James Bird (6th) from the men’s side of the trial and will now move into the next round to be held in April.

More good news came as aspiring Under-23 rower Mathilda Hodgkins-Byrne took part in a weekend of racing in an eight, made of the leading Under-23 rowers in the country.

On the first day the crew took part in the Women’s 8s Head, a national event held on the Thames in London. Mathilda’s crew finished fifth overall, with the top two spots being taken by crews made up of the current GB senior women’s team including several reigning Olympic and World champions.

On the second day the crew travelled to GB Rowing’s training base in Caverhsam, Reading to take part in an invitation women’s 8’s event over a 2k course. The crew gained a creditable second place overall to a strong looking Oxford University crew, who will compete in the women’s boat race in early April.

Hartpury students also recently took part in the ‘Gloucester Head’ competition – a time trial event hosted by Hartpury’s training venue, Gloucester Rowing Club. Wins came in the men’s and women’s J18 single, J18 double, women’s quad and novice men’s quad.
