ROWER Helen Davison – a St Ninian’s pupil - took silver at the national schools’ regatta on Saturday.

The Giffnock girl and her partner Kathleen Castell saw off competition from 30 crews through a qualifying time trial and semi final, only being beaten in the final by the crew from Marlow Rowing Club.

Coach, Alastair Browne commented: “I can honestly say I’ve never been as impressed by them as I was on Saturday.

“When the going gets tough they always seem to be able to find a bit more, dig a bit deeper.”
