LOMOND School rowers Sophie and James Morrison performed well at the Strathclyde Park Regatta last month.

The sister and brother raced on April 22-3 in their respective age categories against competitors who came from as far as Aberdeen and Durham.

James, who is 14 years old, competed in two age categories, winning the Junior 16 Doubles race and the Junior 16 and Junior 15 singles races.

He is no stranger to success, holding two British records for indoor rowing and having won a host of rowing competitions in recent years.

And 13-year-old Sophie’s efforts in her competitive rowing debut earned her second place in the Junior 14 doubles.

James and Sophie’s rowing endeavours are supported by Lomond School, where they attend regular fitness sessions for the school’s elite athletes in addition to their training outside school.

They follow in the footsteps of older brother and former Lomond School pupil Ryan, who rows for Scotland and the Edinburgh University Boat Club, and boasts a number of records to his name.

Johanna Urquhart, Principal of Lomond School said: “James and Sophie are incredibly committed to their rowing, and I am delighted to hear of their successes.

“They are a credit to themselves and the school, and I know that their hard work will secure them further good results in the future.”

James and Sophie will next compete in the Castle Semple Regatta at Lochwinnoch, Renfrewshire, later this month.
