Rowers Open Mullion School Medal Account

Eleven indoor rowers and Mr Loder made the journey   to Penair School for the inaugural Winter School Games. The team was selected from the Level 1 event we ran last month and on paper we looked like we had the potential to pick up some points for the School Games leaderboard.  The team did not disappoint.

After a welcome from the organisers and the wearing of the Peninusla kit our rowers could start the physical and mental preparation for their events on the warm up machines before entering the arena and taking their place amongst the best rowers in the county.  We watched former Mullionite Adam Christophers get a a commendable fourth place for Truro College before Rudy Donovan stepped up for us in the Year 7 competition.  He started very strong and very fast going on to win his heat by one metre but miss out on gold by 10metres to a Redruth rower in the second heat.  A fantastic start to the afternoon.

After this we had two of our girls give everything they had to secure a 7th for Emily and 8th for Lola before the big boys started.  Warren and Otto dismayed their usual bravado and confidence before sitting in machines next to each other in their heat.  Otto, who had previously won this event in Y7, now had to row for four minutes.  A very close set of results from the three heats eventually put Otto in fourth and Warren in 8th.  The rest of our team, Jack, Grace and Nadine, put in great rows over long distances but we had to wait until our Y11 rowers for perhaps the closest battles. Scott Darnell and Aaron Goddard sat next to each other in the race and battled for the medals over the gruelling 6 minute race finishing exhausted in third and fourth overall.  Our final rower was Beth Pearce who had to wait for a long time for her race and nerves were building.  But it was worth the wait.  She worked very hard trying to drag back the leaders but in the end came a wonderful 3rd by 10 metres.

There is no doubt that all the rowers gave their all for Mullion School and I am proud of the way they all performed and supported each other.  The event is very intense with rowers surrounded by shouting crowds watching their progress on the big screen.  The efforts of the rowers today put the school currently in 8th place overall in the School Games with the gig rowing, Projectability and surfing still to come in the summer.
