St Andrew's College have triumphed in the two of the biggest races in school rowing, after winning the Maadi Cup for the first time today.
The victory in the marquee under-18 boys eight followed their win in the Springbok Shield (under-18 coxed four) the day before, doing the double at the competitive regatta.
