Christ Church Grammar School launched two new rowing boats at Champion Lakes over the weekend, named in honour of families significant to the School’s Rowing community.

The boats, a four and an eight, were named “Sam Marsh” and “The Welborn Family” respectively.

Sam Marsh graduated from Christ Church in 2013, during his time with the School he received the Year 12 Runner-up award in the 2013 PSA Head of the River. Since graduating Sam has represented Australia in rowing internationally on several occasions, becoming a member of the Australian men’s coxed four in 2017.

The Welborn family have been avid supporters of the rowing program through time served volunteering with the Don Fraser Rowing Club.
