Head of the River Success

Head of the River Success

Head of the River occurred on 23 March and the Scotch College rowing program enjoyed high levels of participation boasting a strong contingent of 165 students, meaning Scotch is the biggest rowing program in South Australia. All crews raced exceptionally well and represented the College with great pride.

Combining the way the students raced with the atmosphere by the large number of parents, students and supporters who attended the event, it perfectly highlighted what a tremendous culture exists at Scotch College. Scotch was also very competitive and successful on the day. The two major highlights were all crews finishing in the top 4 of their division, and Scotch winning 7 events including the Florence Eaton Cup by the Girls First VIII.

A list of winning crews include;

  • Year 8 Girls F – Sophie Laycock, Eliza Hall, Georgia Parsons, Ella Ifould, Andreas Sitzler (cox)
  • Year 8 Girls D – Emma Prive, Jemma Turnbull, Lily Waltham, Mollie Willson, Lucy Seppelt (cox)
  • Year 9 Girls D – Charlotte Durrant, Ruby Reichstein, Lucy English, Hope Ratcliff, Olivia Sutton (cox)
  • Year 9 Boys A – Louis Fielder, Peter Atsikbasis, Adam Holland, Jaden Perera, Jack Walter (cox)
  • Year 10 Girls D – Alexandra Morner, Amelia Daou, Alicia Krohn, Kate Tozer, Jemma Turnbull (cox)
  • Year 10 Boys B – Harry Buckland, Max Stahl, Fynn Darby, Oscar Turnbull, Marie Dechellis (cox)
  • Senior Girls First VIII – Georgina Taeger, Harriet Watson, Chloe Hooper, Grace Seppelt, Philippa Smith, Lucy Kittel, Lucie Spurling, Charlotte McTaggart, Chloe Morris (cox)



The Girls & Boys First VIII combined with the Year 10 A Boys Quad. The National championships includes crews from all over Australia and is a challenging test. The Year 10 Boys raced in the Under 17 Quad and finished in the B final along with 21st in the Open School Boy Quad event. The Boys First VIII finished 19th in the race which include the highest number of entries in a number of year. The Girls First VIII recovered from questionable weather effecting their semi-final race to win the B final convincingly while posting a very good time. Attending The National Championships and witnessing the best rowers in Australia race against each other and also interact with them in the boat park is an experience which will develop the Scotch Rowing program and inspire the students.
