Year 10 pupil Lauren Mitchell has recently represented Northern Ireland at the Sea Cadet National Combined Regatta. The event took place on September 5th at the Excel Centre in London’s Victoria Dock. Lauren competed in the Junior Girls double kayaking time trial marathon, along with her team mate Catie Peden. The girls faced stiff competition with competitors coming from 6 other regions throughout the UK. After a steady start Lauren and Catie began to power ahead winning by approximately 20 boat lengths and taking gold for Northern Ireland! After a long summer of training, 3 days a week, in Lough Neagh all the hard work has paid off. Well done Lauren!
