MARLOW Rowing Club stormed to 12 medals over the Olympic rowing course at Dorney Lake on Sunday as the club that nurtured Sir Steve Redgrave emphasised its pedigree again at the Thames Valley Trial Head.

The Junior girls squad led the charge with six first places, two seconds and a third.

Another first came in the WJ15 octuple thanks to Caroline Deban, Amber Simon, Rosalind Wilson, Amy Robinson, Jodie Wright, Phoebe Mansfield, Megan Vaughan and Julia Jemielty, while the WJ16 fours went to Erica Holmes, Phoebe Mansfield, Ayomi Rajapakse and Heidi Long.

Wilson and Robertson won the WJ15 double while Tegan Foister, Amber Simon, Holmes and Long led home a strong field in the WJ15 coxed quad.

Completing the junior girls’ medal haul, Saskia Devereux and Molly Harding won silver in the WJ14 doubles and Eleanor Taylor and Rajapakse were third in the WJ16.

The development squad wasn’t far behind, winning the WJ13 coxed quad and finishing second in the J14 fours, while the boys J14 doubles added another Marlow medal.

The seniors were also out in strength, with medals coming from the senior mens eights, the women’s senior doubles, the immediate coxed fours and the immediate three doubles.

Meanwhile, the Marlow juniors were at it again at the Hampton Head a week later.

Racing together for the first time at this event, the WJ15 girls eight of Phoebe Mansfield, Caroline DeBan, Long, Tegan Foister, Holmes, Wilson and Wright, coxed by Louise DeBan, powered to victory.

The WJ18 doubles of Anna Smart and Catherine Foot plus Armstrong, in a composite with Ally French, were in the top three of their category.
