Eights Week triumph for Keble's 1st Men's VIII

Tuesday 29 May 2007

Under the new sponsorship of Neptune Investment Management, Keble started Eights on Wednesday placed 11th in the First Division. During the course of the week, they proved to be the fastest crew on the river, with bumps each day, one of them after only 20 strokes, thus earning themselves blades. The colleges bumped were New, Teddy Hall, Exeter and St Catz. The final bump on St Catz on Saturday took place very early on before the gut, so the crew did a row-past for the benefit of their supporters on the roof of the Keble boathouse - truly stylish! Starting next year in 7th place, the head is within sight.

Crew members: Bow, Tom Etminan; 2 Jon Taylor; 3 Sandy Smith; 4 Ross McAdam; 5 Matthew Brown; 6 Tom Harvey; 7 Lucas Dalglish; Stroke Terence Kookyer; Cox Andy Baker; Coach Ed Green
