Selection success for ACG Strathallan rower

Year 12 rower Scarlet Billingham has been selected to represent Auckland Rowing in Australia at the Queensland State Champs in September.

Scarlet’s selection follows her completion of the rigorous Auckland Light Blues training – a development pathway for talented Year 12 rowers. It consists of six weekend “Mini Camps” run by the Auckland Rowing Association at various clubs around Auckland.

At the conclusion of the camps, the 2017 Light Blues rowing squad was named to represent the best of Auckland school rowing at the regatta in Australia.

Scarlet has been rowing for two years and trains up to 15 hours a week with Counties Manukau Club or using the facilities at ACG Strathallan.

She loves being part of a team and one day hopes to row for New Zealand at the Olympic Games.

“I’d like to progress in rowing as far as I possibly can. It’s about testing how far I can push myself physically and mentally and the feeling you get when you have crossed the finish line knowing you have given it your all.”
