Congratulations to our many rowing teams for their amazing achievements as we wrap up the rowing season for 2017-2018!

At the Head of Schoolgirls Regatta in mid-March, the pinnacle event of the season, we had a huge 31 crews competing at the annual Regatta, an event that attracts thousands of spectators on the banks of the Barwon River. With 171 athletes from Year 9 to Year 12, MLC were the largest school representation – the next largest school at 146.

In tough, windy conditions, all 31 crews ranked in the Top 6 of their events. 26 crews qualified to the A-final of their events, including all eight Senior crews, meaning they finished in the top four to race out for a podium finish. These were our best results achieved over the last ten seasons!

Alas, for the first time in the Regatta’s 33 year history, the difficult decision was made to cancel all A finals due to the adverse weather conditions with no medals awarded. This was disappointing and an emotional time for all rowers, especially those in Year 12, after our crews had trained for months with many very early starts before sunrise! However, the decision was made in the interests of safety of all rowers, staff, parents, volunteers and spectators.

Despite most crews not being able to race in their finals, we are tremendously proud of their accomplishments, their school spirit and their support of each other. Many thanks extend to our coaches and staff who work tirelessly with the girls, and all the parents for organising catering, scoring, and supporting the crews through an especially difficult day.

The following weekend, we then had five crews travel to Sydney to compete at the Australian National Rowing Championships, where our MLC Black 8+ crew placed third, only a whisker from second. A great way to finish off the season.

Congratulations to all!
