The final 'full' team match of the term was a really good team performance.

To be 3rd overall from such a high quality list of schools is very commendable.

The Senior Boys were just pipped by Millfield in their section - outstanding!

The Individual performances are posted elsewhere, but the outstanding set of Relay results highlights the fantastic team effort that was put in - Senior Boys 1st, U17 Boys 2nd (by 0.1sec), U16 Boys 1st, Senior Girls 2nd (by 0.1 sec), Junior Girls 6th.

Overall, another excellent result - well done to everyone involved - good luck to all the individuals who will be going on to compete at County and Representative level.
