2021 Head of School Girls Regatta

Over the 12, 13 and 14th of March 2166 schoolgirls from around the state descended on the Barwon River for the annual Head of Schoolgirls regatta. With disappointment of the cancellation of the 2020 event still fresh in their minds a small but determined group of SHC girls wanted to make this years event a success for the school.

Over the three days of rowing our four crews made a big impression on the regatta. Beatrix Hearn contested the year 9 single scull, winning the D final in a time that would also have seen her win the C final. The year 10 quad scull of Sophie Whelan, Julia Farrelly, Sofia O'Connor, Hannah Glover and Mia Asmus rowed strongly all week, finishing fourth in a closely contested C final. In the open single scull Camryn Howell surprised everyone, including herself, making the A final and narrowly missing a medal in her final year of schoolgirl rowing.

The standout performance for SHC came from open double scull combination of Eliza Ahearn and Evie Timms-Honner, who despite being the smallest crew in the final, still managed to take home a bronze medal from the event. The girls are now looking forward to the 2022 event to see if they can make their way to the top of the podium.

Special thanks go to the hard working group of coaches and parents, including Sandra and Jason Howell, who complete a four stint as rowing club parent committee members.

Well done to all the students who competed in the 2021 Head of the Schoolgirls regatta: Camryn Howell, Eliza Ahearn, Evie Timms-Honner, Sophie Whelan, Sofia O'Connor, Julia Farrelly, Hannah Glover, Mia Asmus and Beatrix Hearn.
