Hudson tops off successful season

AFTER winning most of her competitions at school and state level last year, Warwick rower Harriet Hudson has enjoyed a clean sweep at the Queensland School Rowing Championships at Bucca Weir, Bundaberg.

The Warwick student is a boarder at Somerville House in Brisbane and in only her second year of rowing.

She won gold in single scull, double scull and in the quad at the state championships.

Meg Mackenzie, who has many close relatives at Killarney, was cox for the winning quad.

The three-day regatta late last month at Bucca Weir was the biggest in the state this year.

The pair with a Southern Downs connection also shared a state championship victory last year.

They were part of the Somerville House year 9 first quad which was unbeaten in weekly regattas in term 3 this year at Kawana culminating in victory in the Head of the River involving crews from 10 schools.

Somerville won the aggregate trophy for the fourth time in a row for performances in year 8-12 A and B rowing.

Away from rowing, Hudson won bronze in breaststroke at the Metropolitan regional swimming carnival and bronze in a major cross country meeting at St Paul's School at Bald Hills.

She was most improved in the Somerville House under-14 water polo team this season.
