This year Kaiapoi High School have five junior students competing in the 2018 Aon Maadi Cup Rowing Regatta, currently being held at Lake Ruataniwha in Twizel. The Aon Maadi Cup regatta is the National Championships for secondary school rowing in New Zealand.
The students are Isabella Ewins, Beth Dunbar, Tyla Smart, Neve Sinclair and Madison Broadley (Coxswain). At the beginning of March they took part in the South Island Secondary Schools’ Regatta and were place 2nd, 3rd and 5th in the three events they took part in. They are coached by Armin Svoboda, assisted by Regan Southon.
This morning the girls competed in the Under 15 coxed quad event and qualified for the quarter finals in this event. This is a fantastic achievement for our rowing team and Kaiapoi High School is very proud to support them throughout the week.
