Richmond crews set for the Victorian State Championships

A number of crews will be in Nagambie this weekend representing Richmond at the Victorian State Championships.
Head of Rowing Nicole Stupka has been pleased with the clubs preparation for the state champs and is confident that a number of Richmond crews will be in the hunt for medals throughout the weekend.
The Richmond women’s D four and pairs coached by Kevin Burrows and Barry Campbell look to be the crew to beat in these events coming off the back of strong performances at Rutherglen.
The women’s D eight is another crew that looks to have a great chance of picking up a medal as they are ‘feeling fast and confident after their thorough thrashing of the men’s eight’ at the club races last weekend according to Nicole.
In the women’s sculling events, Richmond will have two C division quad sculls competing against each other in the same event, a D division double scull and World Masters Games medallists Caroline Manning and Geraldine Goss competing in the lightweight single scull and C division single scull respectively.
In the men’s crews, the club will have two eights competing on each day of the championships with both crews in with a strong chance of picking up a medal.
In the men’s sculling events, Richmond hopes are pinned on the B division quad scull and Sam Morrison in the B division single scull.
The State Championships are being held over two days at the Nagambie Water Sports Centre and Richmond crews will feature predominately over both days.
