Queens' Novice Ergo Competition, Mich Term 2001

1st women's novice VIII (1st division)

Coxed by: Caroline Reed

3rd of 24 1st women's novice VIIIs
Time: 15:13.9
The 1st novice women were the first 1st & 3rd crew to 'race' (if thats an appropriate word?). We had decided to enter the newly chosen fixed crews into the competition, and not just the best erg times. This makes their performance even more creditable. They came 8th in their heat, with p.b's from over half the crew. A p.b by at least 2 seconds was put in by bow girl Hannah Barry, despite her falling off her seat. It was a strained heat, with new rules (that we didn't know about) put in and taken out again within about 5 mins (when the computer system worked and then broke down!).

The final was at 10.00pm, and was delayed (meaning that the beautiful and diligent women's lower boats captains had been at Queens for over 5 hours). As the standard this year was so high, we decided that our aim for the evening was to come top 5, which would mean moving up significantly from 8th. Fantastic perfomances were put in by everybody, Hannah pulled 1.53 (managing to stay on her seat this time!), Nonny pulled her first sub 1.50. Everyone gave it everything. To finish 3rd was a brilliant achievement. (Becca)
