THE Grange School concluded a productive day at Bridgnorth Regatta in style when a mixed eight crew was crowned ‘Kings and Queens of the Severn’.

Lewis Gray, Jess Cunningham, Jemima Hasall, Matthew Johnston, Olivia Harding, Omar Siddiqi, Paul Kenyon, Saskia Dry and cox Antoine Moore joined forces to claim the Severn Challenge Cup after winning the final race.

A long day, and testing conditions with heavy rainfall creating a fast-flowing stream, did not deter young rowers from the Hartford school.

Antonia Molton triumphed in an under 18s girls’ single, a feat matched by Mia Brown in the under 15s girls’ age-group category by a comfortable margin.

Lucas Sproul and Will Jessop were the pick of the field in an under 14s boys’ double scull, while Kenyon and Johnston took the under 15s boys’ first prize.

That duo were joined by Gray and Alfie Dickens, while cox Moore steered, to take victory in an under 15s boys’ quad.

Grange prevailed as well in the under 15s girls’ equivalent with Cunningham, Hasall, Harding and Ella Smith on board with cox Anna Smiles.

An under 14s girls’ quad consisting of Georgina Cassidy, Ellisia Acock-Milne, Sophia Sinclair, Olivia Cawley and cox Anton Ball also won in style.

Meanwhile age proved no barrier for two coxed fours that pitted themselves against older rivals.

Brown, Dry, Megan Wall, Sophia Bate and cox Ruby Mortiz-Cammack raced in the under 16s girls’ category,while Rory Innes, Felix Cream-Dunlop, Ben Scawn, Siddiqi and cox Moore were unbeaten in the open men’s bracket.

The Grange could not be caught either in the open men’s eights when Ben Fry, Francis Robertson, Oliver Santini and Tom Haslam formed a crew with Scawn, Johnston, Kenyon and Siddiqi.

A busy Moore coxed that boat with skill along a 500m course.
