Busy month for Hills Road Rowers

In March, College rowers competed in two events on the River Thames

It has been a busy month for the Hills Road rowers. The two Women’s eights crews took part in the Women’s Eights Head of the River Race (WEHORR) on 11th March on the River Thames over a 6.8km course from Chiswick to Putney Pier.
On 23rd March a record number of six Hills Road crews took part in the School’s Head of the River Race (SHORR) on the River Thames. Despite the race almost being called off due to windy conditions, the race went ahead but it was decided to shorten the course. Two Women’s eights crews, two Men’s eights crews plus one Women’s and one Men’s quads crews took part in this national race. Both the Men’s 1st VIII and the Hills Belles came 12th in their categories. The Hills Road Women’s crew came 13th and the Men’s 2nd VIII crew came 14th. The Men’s quad crew came 13th and the Women’s quad crew came 23rd in their categories.
