Thank you to Old Stithian Association Dr Gareth Myles, who matriculated from the Boys College in 2002 for sharing this special moment with us.
With his #SaintsMoment submission he wrote, ‘I’ve attached a single photo to this email. This photo represents possibly my happiest memory of my time spent at St Stithians. Sport has always been a big part of my life and during my time at Saints, rowing consumed me completely. I was never happier than when I was in a boat training or even just spending time with my peers. I made friendships during this time that I will cherish forever and I will never forget that day. The thing that makes this photo extra special is that it also demonstrates the togetherness the Boys’ and Girls’ College Rowing clubs shared in our time. We were a single club in my opinion. We revelled in each other’s victories and encouraged each other in defeat.’
The event was the Buffalo Regatta 2002, both the Girls’ 1st 4x and Boys’ College 1st VIII had won the “A” Final by sizeable margins and we were on a massive high.
Thank you for sharing this inspiring #SaintsMoment with us.
