English Schools Athletics Cup Competition

The Prince of Wales Stadium played host to a fantastic afternoon of English Schools Athletics Cup competition Monday after school. Each team was required to enter 14 (boys) or 12 (girls) athletes with each competitor accumulating as many points as they could across two events. Brilliant performances from the Junior Boys' and Junior Girls' teams saw both finish in 1st place. Both the Intermediate Boys' and Girls' team finished in 3rd position. We await results from other county rounds in the South West to find out if the points totals are enough for us to qualify for the Regional Rounds.

There were many fantastic individual performances from the four teams, with the following achieving the top single score:

Junior Boys- Daksh Bagi (25 points) for his time of 12.5s in the 100m
Junior Girls- Molly Powlesland (21 points) for her time of 5:29 in the 1500m
Inter Boys- George Williamson and Tim Andrew (both 20 points) for their time of 11.9 in the 100m.
Inter Girls- Jade Gough (1500m) and Inca Padfield (800m) who both achieved 20 points for their times of 5:15 and 2:34 respectively.

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!

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.

A Great First Hockey Season!

After a tough fought first term at Pate’s, the Under 12 Girls Hockey Team have ended on a high by becoming Cheltenham District Champions! The girls braved the wind and rain to win their pool with a 0-0 draw followed by 1-0 and 3-0 wins. The girls faced second place from pool A which was Cotswold School and held on to a 1-0 win to make the final against St Edwards School. The final was a tense match with shots and saves at both ends. Naomi Layzell made a twisting and turning run during the last couple of minutes and struck the ball past the keeper. The girls defended strong and held onto their 1-0 victory to become district champions. The team have showed huge improvement throughout the term and the tournament showcased this. Special mentions to Naomi Layzell, who was the tournament top-goal scorer, and Katy Daly in goal who didn’t let a goal in all afternoon.
Congratulations girls!

Pate’s cross country athletes continue to impress

The talent and commitment of Pate’s cross country runners continues to shine through, this time at the County Championships at Newent on Saturday 5th December. Many athletes from Pate’s were selected to represent Cheltenham against the best from Gloucester, The Forest and South Cotswold districts. All athletes ran well with some impressive finishing positions. Among the medal positions were Molly Powlesland (Minor Girls’, 3rd place), Dan Marshall (Junior Boys’, 3rd place), Inca Padfield (Junior Girls’, 2nd place) and Bethan Moor (Senior Girls’, 2nd place). The Senior teams continued to exert their dominance with 4th place finishes for Libby Cherry (Senior Girls’) and Jacob Pickering (Senior Boys’) in addition to the excellent races from Tom Davies (7th), Maxime Dufour (10th) and Andrew McPeake (14th) in the Senior Boys’ competition. In the younger years, Luke Buck put in an impressive show to finish 25th in the Junior Boys’ competition, despite being a year young for the age group. Elsewhere, Emma Clarke (13th) and Millie Davies (22nd) ran well in the Junior Girls’ race while Laura McPeake (6th) and Jade Gough (7th) continue to demonstrate how friendly and supportive competition can really improve performances.  Many of these athletes will now be selected to represent Gloucestershire at the South West Championships being held at Pitville Park this year. Well done and good luck for the rest of the season.
