Showing some depth in numbers SUBC athletes competed in both Melbourne and Sydney last Saturday. In the new Melbourne Head regatta Francis Hegerty, Matt Ryan and coach/cox Marty Rabjohns combined with James Chapman and Dave Matthews of UTS to take out the men’s fours by about a minute. In the men’s Eight they were joined by Tom Herschmiller (our 2005 stroke at intervarsity) and UTS members Geoff and Steve Stewart and Nick Baxter. The crew finished second to 8 seconds behind Melbourne Uni and ahead of Mercantile in third.
In Sydney our remaining rowers finished first and fourth in the Men’s Open Eight at the Head of the Parramatta, while the SUWRC crews won the Women’s Open Eight, Women’s Open Quad and Women’s Intermediate Quad.
