After the success of the County Round of the English Schools Athletics Cup competition, all four teams from Pate's headed to Exeter for the Regional Rounds. We were the only school apart from Millfield (often recognised at the best sporting school in the world!) from the South West to have all four teams in the regional rounds. As if this achievement wasn't enough, we came away with the some of best results in memory. 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 many schools having huge number of students to pick from! The junior girls' team finished in 2nd with Naomi Layzell being the top scorer with 41 individual points. The intermediate girls' team were pushed into 4th with Inca Padfield and Piper Holmes both picking up 38 individual point totals.
It was a fantastic day for the boys' teams with both the intermediate boys' beating all the other teams in their group to win their competitions. Although the junior boys were also announced as winners on the night, a further interrogation of the points put them into second. Oli Hepburn racked up 41 individual points for the juniors with Babajide Popoola gaining 40 points for the intermediate team. Well done to all involved.
