Congratulations, Cockburn ladies!

Congratulations to the Cockburn ladies crew who competed at the 2017 Australian Championships in Albury-Wodonga!

Due to various factors, this small crew of paddlers were the only participants representing WA at the Nationals this year.   Vivienne Wigg was also honoured as the WA flag bearer for the event.

The ladies did a great job. They competed as Senior A paddlers, despite being a crew made up of mostly Senior C and Senior B members, and made it not only to the semi-finals in both their 200m and 500m events, but finished 7th out of 17 teams in the 200m x 10s boat event!  Great work, ladies!  Congratulations!

The ladies team consisted of:

  • Barbara Harris
  • Bernie Constable
  • Carlie Byrne
  • Cherie Cobban
  • Chris Martin
  • Hermie Bourchier
  • Lyn Paul
  • Lynne Kostanic
  • Maggie Marshall
  • Ruth Dennis
  • Sharon Corsbie
  • Vivienne Wigg (also WA flag bearer)
