After the success of the County Round of the English Schools Athletics Cup competition, three teams from Pate's headed to Exeter for the Regional Rounds. The sun shone and the athletes impressed. The day provided the highest level of competition some of our athletes will compete at with top sporting schools from across the South West of England, with some schools having as many as 3000 students to pick from! The junior girls' team finished in 7th with Naomi Layzell (Y7) being the top scorer (36 points) despite being a year younger than almost everyone else in the competition.
The intermediate boys' team ended the day in 4th with Oli Parmar racking up 39 individual points.
The junior boys' team were the pick up the bunch winning their competition by some margin. Once again, Daksh Bagi was highly impressive with a massive 44 point haul from his efforts in the 100m and Long Jump.
Well done to all involved. We look forward to more athletics success in the coming weeks in the Y9 Championships and the minors' competitions.
