Macleans College Year 13 student Harrison Reeve (Kupe House) and Year 12 student Nathan Strachan (Rutherford) have won a national title at the 2024 New Zealand Rowing Championships at Lake Karapiro.

Reeve and Strachan won the men’s intermediate double sculls national title on February 16, after placing first in the final.  They were representing St George’s Rowing Club.

This event is the club championship regatta for New Zealand.

Held alternatively between Lake Karapiro, Cambridge, and Lake Ruataniwha, Twizel, the championships have a rich history; first being held in 1888.

It follows another major success for students from the school earlier this month [Times, February 7].

A team of five Macleans College students won gold at the North Island Club Championships at Lake Karapiro.

The squad – Isabella Chen (Hillary), Harrison Reeve, Nathan Strachan, Logan Turrall (Te Kanawa) and James Dimock (Te Kanawa) – placed first in the men’s coxed quad, representing St George’s Rowing Club.

Reeve and Strachan also won gold at that event, in the men’s intermediate double sculls.

Macleans College rowers now look forward to representing the school at the 2024 Aon Maadi Regatta next month in Twizel.
