SA Rowing

2017/06/02 11:31:02 AM


Congratulations to old boys, Sandro Torrente (2016) and Garth Holden (2015) for being selected for the U23 South African Rowing Squad, touring to Plovdiv, Bulgaria (19 to 23 July 2017).

Both Garth and Sandro represented South Africa as junior oarsmen in 2015 and 2016 respectively, with Sandro winning a Bronze Medal in the Junior Men's Pair event in Rotterdam last year, with Alexander Julicher (2016).

Garth has been studying at Yale University since August 2016 and formed part of the Yale University Rowing team which beat Harvard University at their annual event at the beginning of May 2017. This is the First time in 38 years that Yale has beaten Harvard in the Overall Team Cup.

We are extremely proud of both Garth and Sandro for their outstanding achievements, and we look forward to seeing them continue to make waves on the rowing scene in the future.  We are ever hopeful that one day, we will see them join up with 2016 Olympian Vincent Breet (2011) and Alexander Julicher (2016) for a full St Benedict's College Olympic crew!
