Wednesday 20th April saw rowers of SUBC and SUWRC gather at the grandstand bar to celebrate the end of of great season, our best in 30 years, and to say goodbye to Coach Andrew Randell who is now the Rowing Technical Co-ordinator at NSWIS. With Mat Ryan becoming SUBC’s first Senior A sweep selection in a National team since 1980 and Sydney Uni’s domination of the NSW Championships it was a high note on which Andrew finished. His achievements in the last year included coaching the U23 Coxed Four , gold medallists at the U23 Worlds and the winning SUBC eights in both the Oxford and Cambridge Cup and the 2005 State Champion Eight.
Andrew was recognized two weeks earlier at the SU Sport Awards night where along with Flames’ basketball coach , Karen Dalton, he was voted Sydney University Coach of the Year.
