Modern Pentathlon Success

As others were "winding down" at end of term, Sophie Whitehead (Y12) was away competing for Great Britain at the u19 Modern Pentathlon World Championships. For those unfamiliar with the sport, it is a combination of scores collected across swimming, fencing, horse riding, running and shooting.

After qualifying for the final by finishing 16th in her semi-final, she went on to beat her personal best time for the event to finish an astonishingly good 27th in the world. A huge congratulations from all at Pate's.

Rachel Holland - Henley Women's Regatta 2016

We are delighted and proud to report that Rachel Holland (Year 12) recently won the Groton School Trophy for the junior coxed four event at the Henley Women’s Regatta (following in the footsteps of Flo Pickles last year). Any Henley medal is a prestigious award and Rachel earned this by coxing the Gloucester Hartpury girls over two days. There was a qualifying time trial to reduce the 23 top club and school entries down to 16, followed by 3 hard fought heats to produce the eventual winners in the final round on Sunday. Well done Rachel and all the best for future events.

South West Championships

Well done to all the Pate’s athletes who were selected represent Gloucestershire Athletics Team to compete against all the best talent from across the region in the South West Athletics Championships. All our athletes did themselves, the school and their families proud:

County Girls’ Results: Jade Gough (IG 1500m- 5th), Alex Quinn-Savory (SG 400m- 5th), Bethan Moor (SG 3000m- 2nd), Mel Bird (SG Shot- 1st and Discus- 1st) and Ellen Thrall (SG Hammer- 1st).

County Boys’ Results: Jack Musselwhite (JB 300m- 7th), Rory Cawkwell (IB 200m- 8th) and Jacob Pickering (SB 3000m- 5th).

As a result of their fantastic throwing, Ellen Thrall (Hammer) and Mel Bird (Discus) have been selected to represent Gloucestershire at the National Athletics Championships. This is particularly impressive when you remember that the whole county is only allowed 25 athletes across all age groups, all events and both males and females. Well done to Ellen and Mel, you throw with the support of the whole school community behind you.

Girls’ Minors Athletics Championships

Just a week after the success of the Boys’ Minors, it was the turn of the girls in their Minors’ Championships. Unfortunately, due to trips to Normandy and Y8 camp, we were not able to enter full teams. Instead, we allowed any girls who were around to enter any events they wanted to do. Despite only taking 8 Y7 girls, we managed to win 5 or the 10 events in the competitions with Molly Powlesland (1500m) and Rachel Smith (Shot Putt) winning events. Elsewhere, Naomi Layzell put in one of the most impressive athletic performances ever seen at Pate’s with wins in the High Jump, Long Jump and 800m. As a result, the depleted Y7 team still managed to win their competition- congratulations.

Boys’ Minors Athletics Championships

This week saw the annual Boys’ Minors Athletics Competition take place at a very wet Prince of Wales Stadium. This is the competition where Y7 and Y8 boys compete in the full range of events for their school’s year group team. The competition started brilliantly for Pate’s with many boys making it through their heats and into finals on the track. In the field, there was just as much success with lots of athletes picking up points in their events. Unfortunately, an unprecedented decision had to be taken to abandon the competition when the rain storm started and failed to relent. Luckily, the organisers decided that enough results had been recorded for decisions to be made as to the outcome of the competition. We are delighted that Pate’s boys were crowned champions in both the Y7 and Y8 competitions. Clearly this means that when the points were added together Pate’s retained the Boys’ Minors shield for the 16th year. Special mentions should go to Thomas Stevens (Y8 1500m “B”), Daksh Bagi (Y8 Long Jump) and Olly Hepburn (Y7 Javelin) who all won their events.

County Athletics Championships

Many congratulations to all Pate's athletes who competed at the County Athletic Championships on Saturday.

As a result of their performances, the following have been selected to represent Gloucestershire Athletics Team in Exeter this coming weekend. We wish them all the very best of luck:

County Girls: Jade Gough (IG 1500m), Alex Quinn-Savory (SG 400m), Bethan Moor (SG 3000m), Mel Bird (SG Shot and Discus) and Ellan Thrall (SG Hammer).

County Boys: Jack Musselwhite (JB 300m), Rory Cawkwell (IB 100m and 200m) and Jacob Pickering (SB 3000m)

English Schools Athletics Cup Regional Round

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.

District Rounders Tournament 2016

 

Pate’s U15 team pitted their rounders skills against 9 other schools from Cheltenham and District in a bid to become District Champions for 2016!

In a tough section that had last years winners in it the girls got off to a great start beating Cleeve 51/2 – 21/2

They held their nerve against Cotswold who had beaten them earlier in the season to win that match by half a rounder!

A win against Winchcombe followed and finally they faced Balcarras who had some fantastic hitters in their team. Balacarras emerged winners but in a three way tie in the section Pate’s had done enough to ensure they were first in the section. So a place in the final was secure!

Here they faced CLC. Pates batted first and scored well achieving their highest total of the afternoon.

However again Pate’s were ‘outgunned’ by some tremendous hitting by CLC and although Pate’s did not let much go in the field they were unable to stop CLC overtaking their total. Final score over 20 balls was 121/2- 11

The Pate’s team showed tremendous all round ability and should be proud of their efforts to reach the final and finish as District Runners up.
