St Luke’s win in the Head of the River wasn’t the only thing the school conquered during the regatta at Bucca last weekend.

The school won 16 events, including the major event, as it led from the front against the other schools.

And for two students both were part of four wins.

Sienna Clark and Dayne Mortimer each got those wins for the school, which included the Head of the River.

Clark also added the Year 10 double scull, the Year 10 quad scull and the single scull in Year 10 to dominate her year level.

Mortimer won the quad scull, schoolboys coxed four, and the schoolboys single scull.

St Luke’s also took out the Vince and Donna Habermann spirit award with Phoebe Ellem taking it out with Gin Gin State High Schools Nathan Davis.

Both showed the good spirit and determination that makes the award what it is.

All schools, large and small, were able to take out victories during the day in glorious conditions for racing at Bucca.

This included both Bundaberg North State High School and Gin Gin State High School who had less or just on half a dozen competitors.
