Hosts Take Big Prize at Queen's Regatta

Hosts Take Big Prize at Queen's Regatta

Queen's University filled the top two places in the eights final at their own regatta in Castlewellan on Saturday. Their senior A and senior B crews came in ahead of Neptune's intermediates and two junior crews, from Bann and Portora. Senior crews from St Michael's and Commercial did not make the A Final. The women's eight final also showed how junior crews thrive in the new Grand League format, with Portora relegating UCD's senior women to second place.
