Rowing at MLC continues to go from strength to strength and this year has been no exception, with a number of current students and Old Collegians competing in both national and international competitions.
Just this past week in Plovdiv, Bulgaria, two Old Collegians who are now current MLC rowing coaches, India Dempsey and Elise Franetic, raced in the Under 21 Women's Coxless Four at the Under 23 World Rowing Championships. Racing and results can be followed at http://www.worldrowing.com/events/2017-world-rowing-under-23-championships/
Three current students have also just set off to train in Varese, Italy, before travelling to Trakai in Lithuania, where they will be competing at the Junior World Rowing Championships in the Under 19 Women's Coxed Eight.

Another Old Collegian and current MLC rowing coach, Alexis Hancock, will be coxing the Australian Under 21 Men's Coxed Eight at the Trans-Tasman Championship.
In 2017, MLC Rowing has produced 20% of the Australian Women's Under 19 and Under 23 team members, an achievement that can certainly be celebrated and built upon in future years.
We are looking forward to hearing about all the competitor's exciting experiences abroad and congratulating them on their well-deserved success.
