South Cariboo Rowing Club members Noha Betz, Courtney Cave, James Edge and Lydia Kinasewich competed in singles, doubles and quad races, and won their mixed quad race with a time of 2 minutes 6 seconds at the Deep Cove Youth Invitational Regatta in North Vancouver on Oct. 31.

The weather forced a delay, but conditions improved enough to start racing at 9 a.m., says coach Will Van Osch.

“The win was well-deserved after a tough day of competition and was a nice way to wrap up the season. The ‘on the water’ portion of the rowing season is over, but club members are all ready looking forward to next spring.”
