The Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council has held a reception to mark the achievements of local rower Hannah Scott.

The event took place on Tuesday 15th August in The Mayor’s Parlour, Cloonavin.

Hannah is a member of Bann Rowing Club and has competed nationally and internationally while studying for her A-Levels at Coleraine Grammar School.

At the recent 2017 Irish Championships, Hannah claimed victory in both the Under 18 Single Scull race and the Intermediate Single Scull race. She also struck gold in the Women’s Intermediate Pairs race with fellow rower Katie Shirlow.

The Mayor, Councillor Joan Baird, OBE, said: “Hannah is a true inspiration to us, and has achieved so much since beginning to row with Bann Rowing Club at just 13 years of age. Her hard work and commitment to her sport is clear to see and she truly deserves all the success she has experienced so far in her career. I wish her well as she travels to America to continue her studies at Princeton University.”
