Liskeard up a ‘Golden Gear’ – By Thomas Walters

Liskeard School & Community College, hold your heads up high! Second in the county for the ladies, fourth in the county for mixed years 7 to 9, and finally third in the repechage for the Year 10 and 11 boys!

All three Liskeard teams did exceptionally well as most racers in their boats had only three to five weeks of training before-hand.

Tale of the day: the first race Liskeard competed in was the Year 7 to 9 mixed heat 2. They came in fourth but, although feeling down, were still ready to row on. Next was the Year 10 and 11 boys who put in an amazing effort but also came in fourth. After that the girls did exceptionally well coming in second in their heat advancing them straight to the final. Then came the mixed team’s repechage which they powered through, dazzling and beating all the other teams coming in first.

That was followed by the finals for the mixed teams. Unfortunately a bad start lead Liskeard to fourth in the county. The drama from that race was then replaced with stunned silence as the Liskeard Year 10 and 11 boys made their way to the start of their repechage. The tension was almost unbearable but as they crossed the line third all the team sighed at the neck-and-neck finish.

The last race of the day was the girls’ final. They showed great grit and determination to come second in the county!

A big thank you to all of the coaching team and also the three ladies from Looe that came to compete with us.

The teams from Liskeard were as follows:

  • Mixed – Jake Adams, Mariana Carneiro, Tom Walters, Frank Cozens, Paulo Carneiro and Alisha Wyatt
  • Ladies – Beth Rowsell, Olivia Bourne and Chloe Wyatt
  • Year 10 and 11 Boys – Will Reed, Luke Barrett, Dan Herbert, Jake Ferguson, Louis Kernoa-Pascoe and Josh Penhaligan.
