Basketball winners

The boys  U14 and U18 basketball seasons finished this week with both sides finishing off in style.

The U14s beat all teams to win the Cheltenham and District League, scoring an average of 56 points a game. This means they will represent Cheltenham at the County Championships next year.

After qualifying for the U18 County Finals the squad beat Crypt in the semi-final meaning they had to face the previously unbeaten Wycliffe side in the final. In a very tense final when the lead changed a number of times, Pate's held their nerve to win 37-35 and become U18 County Champions. Well done!

Sophie Whitehead - Pentathlon

We are delighted to see Sophie Whitehead's Modern Pentathlon career go from strength to strength. After previously excelling in the individual events of swimming and running, Sophie now focuses her training on the combined event (involving swimming, running, shooting, horse riding and fencing). 

This weekend saw Sophie compete for Great Britain u19 in an international competition with athletes from Egypt , Germany, Ireland, Spain, Portugal, Swede , Croatia and the USA.

Sophie finished the competition in an impressive 9th of the 31 competitors, 4th of the GB girls. She set personal bests in the swimming and the overall event. She has now been selected to represent GB again in Barcelona, with the European Championships as the next medium term target.

Well done Sophie!

Swimming Galas

Over 100 swimmers from all year groups took part in the heats and finals galas at Pittville pool. All Year 7 students were spectators for the finals and certainly added to the excitement and noise as they keenly cheered on their houses. It was great to witness some top swimmers who spend many hours a week training to get to their level of performance competing so competitively for the individual and main house shield.

Congratulations to Richmond House who just pushed Beaufort into second place. Congratulations to the following swimmers on their success of winning individual trophies.

Juniors – Joseph Giles and Emily Wan

A new sport at Pate’s

Over the last 2 weeks Pate’s have entered the County Handball Tournaments at U13 and U15 age groups. In lessons, practices and at the tournaments the students have loved the challenge of a new sport. The teams were also very successful bringing back 3 second places, with the U15 boys becoming County Champions. The boys will now represent Gloucestershire at the South West Tournament.

South West U18 Netball Finals 2016

 

After qualifying as the second place team in Gloucestershire after the County Tournament, Pate’s knew that the competition was going to be tough. The squad travelled down to Cambourne in Cornwall on Friday afternoon. The following day the squad stepped up to the level required and played excellent netball throughout the day, despite it being very cold and a bit wet at times.

The first game against King Edwards started off very close with Pate’s leading at half time, however the opposition came back a lot stronger in the second half and picked up balls from a few unforced errors, leaving the final score as 11-6 to King Edwards. The next two games seemed to go the same way for Pate’s, losing 9-5 to Truro College and 5-3 to Maynard.

Pate’s kept their determination and came back to beat New College Swindon 10-7 with a strong team effort. The next game was against Millfield, who went on to win the tournament. Pates played the best they could but unfortunately lost 14-5. With the final game against Canford, Pate’s gave all they could but lost 14-9. Pate’s had a great day of netball with the scores perhaps not reflecting how well they worked together with multiple turnovers within defence and midcourt and some excellent goals by the shooters. Congratulations in representing Gloucestershire in the Regional Finals.
