There was something for the sprinter, the middle-distance enthusiast and those who love the endurance at the Otago secondary schools indoor rowing championships on Sunday.

Just under 100 competitors lined up from 11 different schools, including a team of six from Dunstan High School.

There were the standard races of 2000m for the rowers, along with 1000m for novices.

Shorter distances of 500m and 100m were also raced, with the best rowers knocking out times of under 20 seconds for the 100m distances.

Dunstan High School won the girls relay for the first time, taking it out of the hands of Columba College with a time of 6min 58.7sec.

Otago Boys' High School won the boys relay in a time of 6min 22.7sec.

Bayfield High School's Eva Hofmans won the girls 2000m overall age groups, taking back the trophy she won two years ago, with a time of 7min 25.9sec.

Peter Rowe won the boys equivalent in a time of 6min 54.9sec.
