Annual Junior Award Winners and Beach sprints

Beach sprints

  • Lucy Freeman represented the club well at the Home International Regatta at Saundersfoot this weekend – Lucy had been selected as the reserve and what a great job she did as the boat handler – she was thanked by all for the support she had given to the whole team
  • Junior Sefi Ormston travelled up to St Andrews in Scotland this weekend where she was the only non-Scottish athlete to compete – the juniors and seniors raced together – Sefi only made it to the final where she won the juniors and was the second fastest woman overall

Every year we hold a Junior end of season BBQ which took place today.  At this event we present some awards – with the exception of the Rowers Rower which the juniors themselves nominate for – all the awards are decided by the Junior Coaching team. The quality of the awards reflects the quality of all the kids we have who are so proud to be members of Tees RC.Our congratulations to everyone.

She has really stepped up in the Vice Captain role, and this has been good to see,
