Congratulations to 3rd year David Barlow on his silver medal in the Irish Provinces Indoor Rowing Championships. The annual event consists of individuals and teams racing a set time or distance on the rowing machine in a variety of categories and age groups. Sligo Grammar School had five students taking part in the day’s competitions, Matthew Ryan, Ambrose Bamber ,Kyul Chan, David Barlow and Joshua Hanna. The outstanding performance of the day was David Barlow’s time of 1 min 33.8 secs to cover  500 meters. This was an incredible effort and a personal best for David. He came second out of a total of 36 competitors and this earned him the Silver medal for the event. The Sligo Grammar School Rowing club is thriving under the coaching of Ronan Ivers.
