Three of our juniors were selected to compete in the English Schools Combined Events Championships at Exeter on Exeter on 21st and 22nd September. Well done to Darcy Button, Stephen Simmons, and Gracie Wall.
In a magnificent all-round display Stephen Simmons won the English Schools Intermediate Octathlon title. Despite strong winds on Saturday and some heavy showers on Sunday, Stephen focused on each of the eight events determined to make each one count. He did so with devastating effect, setting lifetime personal best performances in seven of them. It is difficult to know which one was the most outstanding highlight.
