Central Otago Athlete Sam Pearce  has had a very successful rowing season. Sam was selected to row for the men’s U20 Otago provincial squad. Sam also placed 2nd in the U19 1x  at the R2K singles regatta, and then went on to win the men’s club 1x at the South island club championships.

Quote from Sam ” I was lucky enough to be apart of the Central Otago Academy programme this year, it’s the first time being part of a programme like this, and I have found everything very beneficial for my sport and my everyday life”.
