claiming the South Island schools’ polo title. College A polo team: Rohan Tennekoon, George Hutchinson, Henry Batchelor, Edward Davidson. College B polo team: Winston Hutchinson, Edward Davidson, Angus Turnham, Henry Bowmar. Rowing College made Maadi history by being the first school to ever win the U15 Octuple, U16 Eight, U17 Eight and U18 Eight all in the same season. The novice Eight of Josh Johnston, Seb Hudson, Tom McEwen, George Lill, Tyus Dimbleby, Matt Patterson, Tim Ward, Edward Priest and Hugo Nelson were well behind Hamilton Boys’ High School at the halfway mark, but an epic comeback saw them pipped at the line by only 0.2 seconds, to claim a well-earned silver medal. The U15 Octuple crew of Louis Bethel, Liam Alexander, Jono
Henderson, Thomas Johnston, Tom McEwen, Guy Chaffey, Gus Orr, Fearghus Bratten and Hamish McCulloch were trailing at the 1000m mark, but managed to find another gear and began to reel in the leading boats. In the last 100m they managed to power ahead of Christchurch Boys’ High School and win the title, by a margin of 0.7 seconds.
The U16 crews had a very successful day, with the U16 Eight defending the title College won last year and the U16 Four adding another win to the tally. Both races were very close, but the crews held their nerve when it mattered. The U16 rowers were Tim Ward, Fearghus Bratten, Dom Edmond, Fletcher Anderson, Lachie Hazlett, Guy Chaffey, Charles Smith and Fin Smith.
