The Nanaimo Rowing Club is in fine form so far this spring.

After an encouraging April including good results at a regatta in Duncan, the team was competitive at the high-calibre Brentwood College Regatta at the beginning of May.

Riley Knight finished second in junior girls’ A singles, while the junior B boys’ quad of Ian Rogers, Ethan Watchorn, Cohen Inglis, Matthew Gall and coxswain Michael Jonah-Bigg placed third.

In other club news, Knight finished third overall at Rowing Canada’s junior national team tryouts in Burnaby last month and she and Meg Montgomery will attend further tryouts in Welland, Ont.
