My name is Courtney Prebble and I am a 17 year old rower currently in my last year of high school in New Zealand. I row for St Margarets College in Christchurch and am currently training towards the pinnacle event of the season which is Maadi Cup( New Zealand Secondary Schools Nationals). I can scull and currently am focusing on rowing in my single which I have been training and racing in for two seasons, I can also sweep and row bow side/port. I really enjoy rowing and am looking at continuing this passion by rowing at a university in America. I believe I am a good candidate for a team because I have endured many highs and lows during my time in this sport and I believe that I have built up a high level of determination and persistence.
