Nationals Update

A HUGE congratulation to Westies superstars Matt Cochrane and Hannah Vermeersch on their recent performances at the World Cup Trials!

Hannah has been named in the Senior A Women’s Eight while Matt was named in the Senior A Men Coxed Eight squad.

Hannah will also be rowing for WA in the Queen’s Cup Eight at Nationals and Matt will be representing us in the King’s Cup Eight.

Congratulation also go to TC Maguire who was selected as the coxswain for the Queens Cup Eight and Elinor Scott who will be coxing the Men’s Youth Eight.

Sam Hughes and Nick Wakeford overcame some serious injury hurdles to be named reserves for the Kings Cup crew and Denika Kelsall also did a fantastic job being named reserve for the Women’s Youth Eight.

Not to be forgotten is the hard work of coaches Ross Martin, Claire Woolfitt, Shaun Brady and Jorien Leidekker. Ross and Claire will be heading over East to not only coach our Westies contingent but also with the Women's Youth Eight and Men's Lighteight Four, respectively.

Overall this is a fantastic effort from a small squad and we couldn’t be prouder of everyone’s efforts!! Can’t wait to see what you get up to in Penrith.
In time honoured Westies tradition, we will be having a send-off for the athletes named above, as well as Amy Walters, Teischa Jones, Zak Campbell and Janelle Austin, on the weekend before they head off to compete.

Janelle is organising a club breakfast for Saturday March 9. This will kick off from about 8.30am so most people will have finished training or had the benefit of a small lie in. There will be a small fee to cover the costs of breaky (something around $10).

Those of you who have been at the club over the past 6 months have witnessed the hard work, dedication, calorie restriction, blood, sweat and tears that have gone into these athletes training. I hope to see everyone down on March 9 to congratulate them on some fantastic results so far and wish them luck before they head off to Sydney!

If you can make it, please RSVP to Nel on so she has an idea of numbers to cater for.
