With the first of two finals days on the horizon at the Maadi Cup regatta on Lake Ruataniwha, crews jostled for their chance to race for the medals today.

St Peter's school dominated the semifinals of the under-18 girls double.

Two of their crews finished first and second in one of the races with Jessica Brougham and Samantha Voss setting the fastest time.

The boys under-18 lightweight coxed four was dominated by Onslow College.

The crew of William Fahey, Angus Todd, Will Pearson, Josh Blackmore and cox Dion Blackmore have a two second advantage based on A final qualifying times.

Hamilton Girls' High School's Georgia Allen was the quickest qualifier for the girls under-18 single, while Kavanagh College's Jack O'Leary remained the man to beat in the boys under-18 single.

Waimea College's under-18 double combination of Sean Ducray and Sam Johnston were the fastest qualifiers by nine seconds for their final.

There will be plenty of interest tomorrow in some of the under-18 events with automatic New Zealand Junior Team trials on the line.

First in the boys and girls 18 coxed four and first and second in the boys and girls pairs or the boys and girls single-sculls will earn rowers that opportunity.
