Winning performance by College canoeists

This past Saturday, Maritzburg College hosted the final event of the Capital Caterers Inter-Schools League. A revised course from previous years saw the paddlers racing a shorter and more intense Enduro on Campsdrift. The relay-style event comprised team of two doubles fighting it out for line honours and the overall series title. The Maritzburg College A team, made up of D. Evans, S. Little, J. Giddings and B. Lawson went stroke for stroke with the Michaelhouse A team. A solid final lap and smoothly executed portage by Giddings and Lawson gifted Evans and Little a slender lead going into the end sprint, where they took the victory, and ensured that College brought home the Graeme Pope-Ellis Trophy for the winning boys team in the Inter-schools Canoe Challenge. Boys Under 18: 1st – Maritzburg College A; 7th – Maritzburg College C; 8th – Maritzburg College B. Boys Under 16: 4th – Maritzburg College B; 6th Maritzburg College A. Boys Under 14: 4th – Maritzburg College A. In the Capitol Caterers – Kayak Centre Interschools overall series results were as follows: Under 18 - 1st – D. Evans, 2nd – J. Giddings’ 3rd – S. Little. Under 14 - 2nd – G Cooke. In the Schools Development Club Prize for accumulated points for every paddler, Maritzburg College finished in 2nd place.
