Dorney Feb 13What an exciting day Alfriston School’s Rowing Squad had at the South Bucks Schools Indoor Rowing Championships at the Olympic Venue of Eton College Rowing Centre Dorney Lake on 5 February 2013.   There was an electric, vibrant atmosphere amongst all the competitors who keenly fought the Individual and Relay races.   Our girls were treated to a masterclass by Mr Terry Hunter, Eton College Rowing Centre Head Coach and father of Olympic Champion Mark Hunter, at the start of the day and then the action really started.   All our girls who entered really excelled themselves against the stiff competition of the mainstream schools.   The other schools who participated were Burnham Grammar School, The Beaconsfield School, Beaconsfield High School, Chalfonts Community College and Burnham Park E-Act Academy.  Also present was Tom Wilkinson who represented GB at 3 Senior World Championships, 6 World Cups, 3 Under 23 World Championships and one Junior World Championship.   He is also 5 times National Champion and won 4 times at Henley Royal Regatta.  At the end of a long day the girls were all awarded medals and returned to school with big smiles and very tired muscles.
