A former Queen's School pupil is celebrating after being named as President of the Cambridge University Woman's Boat Club, just two years after joining the association.

Hannah Roberts, who is currently Studying Natural Sciences at Jesus College Cambridge, left Queen's in 2013 and was a keen sportswoman throughout her time with the school. Hannah played netball, lacrosse, rounders and enjoyed swimming but it was her passion for rowing and her involvement with Grosvenor Rowing Club that inspired her to become one of the youngest members of the Cambridge Boat Race squad in 2014. Hannah rowed at number 4 in the reserve boat, Blondie, against Oxford’s reserve crew Osiris in April 2015.

Cambridge University Woman's Boat Club chose to profile Hannah's achievement as part of its #teammatetuesday social media campaign.

Hannah follows in the footsteps of Queen’s old girl Louise Makin, who in 1984 rowed stroke for the first ever lightweight varsity race, the crew of which reunited at the Boat race in 2014 for a 30 year anniversary commemorative row past.
