More than 180 young rowers from the rowing club Kastela and the volleyball players of club “Marina Kastela” together with their parents and the management of both clubs attended the Christmas gathering at the charter terminal of Marina Kastela.
The merry attendees also enjoyed some “adevent bakalar”, a traditional winter fish dish. The youngsters were happy to have some pizza. This traditional Christmas gathering was a good opportunity to give presents to the best young athletes and to encourage all others.
The following rowers won medals in 2007 and received sports sneakers as a present:
Mila Pavlović, Petra Milan, Tea Klaric, Antonija Miletić
Antonio Drnasin, Kristijan Ljubičić, Mate Mamic, Mijo Rudelj, Jure Vrdoljak, Petar Jurić.
Josip Maretić, Darko Malbašić i (kormilar) Mate Maleš
As in past years, the clubs associated with Marina Kastela will attend a winter camp in Kranjska Gora (Slovenia) starting on January 6, 2008.
Three scholarships were awarded to the best female volleyball players, who are at the same time excellent students. It is important to note that their monthly scholarships are not exclusively bound to them playing volleyball, but to their academic achievements. The students will continue to receive the scholarships even if they quit volleyball, as long as they continue to excel in their studies.
Recipients of the monthly 1,500 KN scholarships:
Ivona Kolak, tourism high school.
Višnja Jurić, language high school
Marina Pavlov, medical high school.
Congratulations to all!
