National Golden Glory For Clancy

Mackay Rowing Club is basking in the glow of success as its members make waves at the National Rowing Championships in Tasmania. With a display of skill and determination, four of the club's athletes have given it their all at the prestigious Lake Barrington International Rowing Course. Richard McGrath, Therese Clancy, Jane Deguara, and Michael Wolhfahrt demonstrated exceptional teamwork and prowess as they powered through the waters.
Teaming up with Pinerivers Rowing Club, Mackay's rowers secured a victory in the Ladies G quad event, claiming the coveted gold medal.
In the Ladies G Double event, they clinched the silver medal, showcasing their versatility and skill, and in the Women's F Double event, they seized another gold medal with Riverway Rowing Club, the ladies reaffirming their dominance on the water.
But the accolades don't end there. Mackay Rowing Club had another reason to celebrate, as Therese Clancy emerged as a National Masters Rowing Champion. With a stellar performance in the Ladies Lightweight G Single event, Clancy clinched the gold medal, further solidifying her status as a formidable force in masters rowing.
This triumphant journey follows the club's remarkable success at the State Masters Championships at Lake Wyaralong, where the quartet amassed an impressive tally of 18 medals.
