PLC dom­i­nates Head of the River

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Driveway -

PRES­BY­TE­RIAN Ladies’ Col­lege came out on top at last Satur­day’s IGSSA Head of the River row­ing re­gatta.

PLC won the First Eight Race with the Methodist Ladies’ Col­lege team sec­ond and Perth Col­lege third.

They also won the Wendy Zuide­veld Per­pet­ual Head of the River Tro­phy and the Over­all Sea­son Premier’s Tro­phy.

PLC head of sport An­nette Pearce said con­di­tions were tough, in­clud­ing a last-minute change of venue.

“Con­di­tions were very tricky and try­ing for all row­ers on the day, which added to the ex­cite­ment of the day, es­pe­cially with the late change in the venue to Can­ning Bridge and not Cham­pion Lakes,” Ms Pearce said.

“For PLC to win the Wendy Zuide­veld Per­pet­ual Tro­phy, as well as the Per­pet­ual Tro­phy for School­girl Pre­miers was a to­tal ef­fort by all PLC row­ers and as a school and com­mu­nity we could not be prouder of the girls and coaches.

“The day was topped off by our First Eight, coached by David Milne, win­ning. ”
