Pymble rowers paint the podium in scarlet, navy and white
Sunday 27 April, 2014
The 2014 Schoolgirl Head of the River, the climax of the rowing calendar, was held on 16 March at Sydney’s International Regatta Centre in Penrith. Pymble presented a strong team with more than 130 rowers from Years 8 to12, the largest team entered in this event in Pymble history. All 26 crews put in 110% effort, contributing to Pymble’s victorious claim of the Overall Point Score trophy.
The day was a brilliant display of Pymble’s competitive and talented rowing program and showcased the College’s colours. Following the tradition of past Head of the River events, the colours scarlet, navy and white lined the riverbank as Pymble rowers, families and friends created a tunnel for the send-off of the 1st VIII, accompanied to the sound of bagpipes. The cheering, chanting and supportive applauses led by Pymble girls on the day was unparalleled by any other school and is a reflection of the College’s spirit and sense of camaraderie.
