School rowers look forward to well-earned rest after more enthralling Maadi Cup action on Lake Karapiro.
Mums and dads around the country have happily turned the alarm clocks off and can again look forward to some well-earned sleep after countless early starts in getting budding oarsmen and oarswomen to morning training in preparation for the annual Maadi Cup regatta.
About 2500 of New Zealand's best young rowers were in action on Lake Karapiro last week in one of the most competitive events on the secondary school's sporting calendar.
In the end the loudest cheers and honours went to Hamilton BHS, for their hard-fought win over Napier BHS in the under-18 eights and with it the Maadi Cup, and St Margaret's College who had a little easier triumph in their under-18 eights for the Levin Jubilee Cup.
The regatta again produced the very best in on-water competition with honours well spread.
Hamilton BHS pipped St Margaret's for the Star Trophy as the overall points winners with EGGS (sixth equal) the best of the Auckland schools.
Dunedin's Kavanagh College claimed the Presidents Scull as the top sculling school.
Little surprise really in that as Zoe McBride won the under-18 singles, teamed with Hannah Duggan to win the double sculls, the lightweight double sculls and joined Caitlin Buist, Anna O'Leary and cox Phoebe McBride in winning the quadruple sculls.
John Parnell, who coached all those crews, was awarded the Bill Eady Cup for his outstanding effort.
Mike Stanley, heavily involved with rowing since his school days at WBHS and selected for the ill-fated 1980 Moscow Olympics before competing four years later in Los Angeles, is continually encouraged by the depth he sees at the Maadi Cup regatta.
"Around 15 to 20 per cent of those who compete for their schools continue in rowing with almost every future international coming through the school system," said Stanley.
"The close association between many of the leading rowing schools and clubs play a vital part in this.
"There are now more avenues for those who want to carry on after school," said Stanley. "A number now go to universities in America, something that was not available in my day.
"Rowing is a big summer sport in New Zealand for schools all around the country with most rowers later coming under the umbrella of Rowing New Zealand having come through the school system," said Stanley.
In Lake Karapiro and Lake Ruataniwha rowing has two world class venues which play a major part in their success.
While rowers (and their mum and dad taxi drivers), apart from those who will go on to the high performance programme, can look forward to a break come term four they will be back on the water getting ready for their next trip to one of the most popular events on the secondary schools sporting calendar.
