On Saturday 27 February the Ruyton Year 9 and 10 squads travelled to the Barwon River for the 2016 Junior State Championships. The morning yielded good results for the Year 9 girls and with a light prevailing tail-wind, they were able to capitalise on late training efforts and position themselves well for this weekend’s Head of the Schoolgirls.

Afternoon weather conditions changed for the worse and challenged many crews on the supporter side of the course. The Year 10 1st and 2nd Quads finished with Silver medals. Also racing in the afternoon was the Year 10 Senior combined crew in single sculls. Millie F (NSW Champion) took home a silver medal in the Open Division 2 single.
