Head of the River 2019

The 122nd AAGPS Head of the River took place on Saturday 23 March at the Sydney International Regatta Centre with Newington fielding seven crews across the day.

The two Year 10 VIII crews both finished 4th, with both crews rowing a season personal best, a credit to all boys and coaches involved.

The 3rd and 2nd IVs both finished mid-table, with the 1st IV rowing an outstanding last 250m to finish 3rd.

In the 2nd VIII race, Newington rowed a fantastic last 500m to steam home and place 3rd behind Kings and Shore.

The 1st VIII race was going to be tight across the top six crews with Newington leading at the first 500m and second at the 1000m mark, unfortunately the boys were unable to bring it home and finished in 6th position with Shore victorious.

Newington would like to acknowledge our Year 8 and Year 9 rowers who finished second in the Junior Points score behind Shore. Well done to all boys and coaches involved.

The rowing community would like to thank all Newington students and supporters for their attendance on Saturday.
