Tessa Morris, the junior world bronze medallist in the pairs last year, stroked the Lady Eleanor Holles eight to victory in the college eights, beating the American favourites, George Washington University, in the semi-final. Six of the LEH crew will now progress to the final trials for the British junior team.
The open eights final proved an easy four-and-a-half length victory for a Bedford Staines Composite over Thames Rowing Club who won the club eights in 5:05, the same time as the open event. The quadruple sculls produced another fine race with the world silver medallist, Sue Key, at bow, beating Thames by half a length. Sue Appleboom won the lightweight single sculls in 6:11, 16 seconds faster than the open sculls, which was won by Carroll of Nottingham.Reuse content
