Thurber Rowing Students win!

On October 1st a wonderful group of LTCHS students participated in races in Calgary with the Central Alberta Rowing Club. They won their category for the last two 3km Head races and their time of 13 minutes 34 seconds on Saturday in Calgary was faster than a number of more experienced crews. 

Ideally, students should be racing separate boys and girls crews, but the organisers allowed us to boat a mixed crew in the Junior Men's Novice category because Thurber does not have enough students at the moment for two crews. The plan is to encourage more students to take part in Rowing for next year. The winter training program is expected to start in November with the use of the rowing machines to recruit some more students. 

Confratulations to the Thurber students who rowed competitively this summer:
