Gillotts Dominate Oxfordshire County Rowing Finals

Gillotts School students took part in the Oxfordshire County Indoor Rowing Finals on Tuesday and returned with a clutch of medals, predominantly gold and two trophies.

The finals took place on ergos and started with timed pieces and the final events were relays, with students swapping places on the ergos.

Gillotts took first place for Year 10 boys with Ben Doyle, who is not a rower, putting in an exceptional performance. The Year 9 girls took all 4 top places and the Year 9 boys took all 3 top places. The Year 8 girls took 1st and 2nd and the Year 8 boys 1st.  In the relays, both the U13 and U15 teams took 1st and 3rd places.

In the final count, Gillotts took home the trophies for top performing school in both U13 and U15 age groups.

Luke Harding PE teacher said, “The students performance was a credit to the school and it was a pleasure to watch the students compete in a County event.”
