Four girls from the Victoria City Rowing Club made their mark at the 129th Royal Canadian Henley regtta earlier this month.

The crew of Allie DeLarge, Keira Flanagan, Shannon Huff and Emily Lerhe pushed their junior-A girls quad boat to gold with a significant nine-second lead over the next boat.

DeLarge also placed second in the junior women’s pair with Stewart while Huff and Flanagan won silver in the junior women’s double.

DeLarge and Huff recently competed in the Western Canada Summer Games with fellow Victoria City rower Jessica Stewart.
