SAS Rower Does Town of Wentworth Proud

Sunraysia Academy of Sport athlete, Amy Rix, performs well at the Australian Rowing Championships.

The Sydney International Rowing Regatta was held on 24th-30th March with crews from all around Australia competing in under age and open events.

“Amy Rix returned from the Australian Rowing Championships held in Penrith, Sydney with a 7th overall placing in the Under 17 single sculls event.  With more than 40 competitors in the overall event, Amy won her first heat in the fastest Under 17 time of the day to take her straight into the Semi-Final and then qualified for the A final with a personal best time of 8.28 minutes.  She battled very wet conditions in the final against tough race hardened competition and did her small country rowing club, Wentworth proud.” Cheryl Rix

For a second year, Amy is a part of the Sunraysia Academy of Sport Individual Athlete Support program. The Academy congratulates Amy on her personal best performance at the recent Nationals.
