Five pupils from WCB represented Northern Ireland (Canoe Association NI) at the first National Regatta in Nottingham last weekend. Year 11 pupils Alex, Kathryn, Sophie, and Year 10 pupils Ceri and Izabela competed in the Sprint Kayak discipline.

They raced K1, K2 and K4 over distances of 200m and 500m. All athletes performed brilliantly in difficult conditions.

Alex won K2 200m and K2 500m A final and was placed 3rd in the K1 200m A final. Kathryn qualified for her K1 200m A final placing 7th, Sophie came 2nd in the K1 200m B final placing 2nd. The squad are racing again at the end of April.

Well done to all pupils!
