What a week in Scotch sport.

Not only were our regular IGSSA and SAAS Schools Competition sides in action, but the first ever Collegiate Cup ve Pembroke got underway, and the annual Head of the River regatta was held on Saturday.

Our Scotch Girls Cricket side got the College off to the perfect start in the Collegiate Cup against Pembroke on Friday, taking out the match in thrilling fashion by 4 runs. Collegiate Cup points were also up for grabs at Head of the River in the Senior Girls and Boys First VIII squads.The Girls claimed a point over Pembroke by finishing runners-up, while Pembroke won a point back by finishing ahead of the Boys First VIII.

As it stands, Scotch leads the Collegiate Cup over Pemrboke 2-1. With many more games scheduled for this week, be sure to check back for updates and final results. Good luck to all of the sides competing in the remaining Collegiate Cup games. Fixtures for the remaining games can be found here.

Head of the River 2018

Thousands of spectators joined the 132 Scotch students who competed in the 2018 Head of the River - thank you to all of you who attended to cheer on our Scotchies. The regatta was run in challenging cross head conditions, but all of the Scotch crews put in their best effort, competing with great pride and supported their teammates with extreme enthusiasm.

All Scotch crews were extremely competitive - 12 crews finished in the top 3 for their divisions. 6 crews narrowly missed out on winning their event, placing 2nd, including the Boys 8 A, Girls 8 D, Boys 9 B, Girls 10 A, Girls 2nd VIII and Girls 1st VIII.

The 9A Boys were unlucky not to win, having been undefeated all season until 80m remaining in the final, when they broke an oar. The senior crews performed well with the girls 1st VIII placing 2nd and the Boys 1st VIII 0.03s away from 3rd.

The highlight of the day was the winning 10A Quad, who beat Prince Alfred & Saint Peter’s by 2.26 seconds. This is an extremely tough event to win and the 3rd time in the history of Scotch College the school has won the event.

The rowing season has been successful with all squads winning medal. With the small number of Year 12s graduating and the quality of the younger students coming through, we look forward to seeing some great results in the years to come.
