Honours Well Dispersed at Carlow Regatta

The home club, with an entry of over 40 crews, took a big share of the honours at Carlow regatta yesterday, but there was plenty of glory to go around. Neptune's girls and boys took some of the prize sculling titles; St Joseph's won the final race of the day, beating St Michael's in the junior 15 eight, whlle Commercial took the junior 16 women's eight. The St Michael's novice double of Gearoid Glynn and Nigel Kerr won their final, while Athlone took the junior 18A single scull.

 Carrick-on-Shannon again confirmed their rise at underage level, taking the women's novice four and the men's novice quad. But the western club had to give way in the closest final of the day, as William Little was beaten by one foot by Graiguenamanagh's Patrick Brereton in the men's novice single scull.
