THE Isle of Ely Rowing Club's enviable winning streak showed no signs of slowing at the weekend as they picked up a host of medals at the Cambridge Junior Sculling Championships.
Joining together with colleagues from King's School in Ely, the club scored notable wins in a number of categories, continuing what has been a landmark year across much of the junior section.
Laura Sibson, representing the King's School, and Nell Freeman, representing the Isle of Ely, raced and won twice, first in the WJ14 double sculls category and then again with crew mates Phoebe Bradbury (King's) and Libby Milne (Isle of Ely) in the WJ14 coxed quad category.
The girls won both events emphatically, beating their nearest double sculling rivals from Rob Roy by 25 seconds.
The WJ14 coxed quad completed the course in an impressive time of six minutes and 43 seconds, which was not only the fastest time for their age group but also faster than the winning crews in the WJ15 and WJ16 events.
In the WJ18 coxed quad event, the Isle of Ely Rowing Club notched up another win. Not only did the WJ 18 coxed quad of Anna Towriss, Emma Pencheon, Stef Boughey and Jenny Kingsmill record the fastest time for their category of six minutes and 32 seconds, they also won the WJ18 quad category overall.
