Leinster Indoor Rowing Championships
KH was very well represented this year with 9 students competing in the Leinster Indoor Championships, which took place in the Garda Boat Club on Saturday 26th November.
In the Womens Junior 16 category KH's Maile Wedgwood and Sophie Thompson put in superb performances to finish second and fourth overall out of a huge entry of 26 rowers. Maile's silver medal performance was just 4 seconds behind the winner, covering the 2k distance in a time of 7 minutes 45 seconds. Sophie had an excellent race too and was unlucky to finish just outside a poduium position.
In the Mens Junior 16 category there were 20 entries and Jack Downey raced well to finish midtable.
In the Mens Junior 18 event there was also a large entry of 26 rowers. The fastest KH rower was Taran Crooks who finished in the top ten with a time of 6 minutes 48 seconds. Jack Lane was next home in a time of 7.04. Jay Ryan completed the distance in a time of 7.16, Niall Henry was 7.22 and Sam Hayes was 7.51.
