Regional B Finals at Yeovil

- the schools ranked 8 to 16 in the Western half of the country (Cornwall, up to Hereford and across to Hampshire and Berkshire).

Junior Boys - finished 4th, achieving more points than they did in winning the County round. The whole team performed to a very high standard and were extremely well behaved and supportive of each other throughout the day.

Notable points / times: Miles Lawler (43.6s 300m, 20pts), Will Kennaugh (TJ 9.96m (18pts) and 14.3s in Hurdles; 18pts), Jake Le Gassick (13.8s in Hurdles, 20pts), Byron Knowles (1.47m in HJ, 19pts), George Vickery (26.70m in Javelin, 19pts)

Inter Boys - finished 2nd. All the more remarkable considering the pupils missing. As with the Junior Boys, excellent standard, exemplary behaviour - and they were revising in between events.

Lutra Shield (Yeovil Track)

Lutra Shield Meet
1st Millfield 511
2nd Blundell's 492
3rd Taunton 459

On Saturday 10th May, Blundell’s travelled to Yeovil for the prestigious Lutra Shield Competition. This event, for U20 Senior Boys only should favour the larger schools and is contested annually. Each school has to field 3 competitors in each event and points are scored based on position.

This year, the sunshine seemed to really bring out the best of the Blundell’s boys, particularly with so many younger boys making their debuts. There were some outstanding performances with 1st places secured by Paddy Canterbury (400m A string), Karl Still (1500m B String), Arthur Friend (110m Hurdles B String),  Austin White (Discus C String) and Cam Seymour (Triple Jump C string). In addition numerous athletes recorded new lifetime bests in their events, the highlights including Jack Webber (100m and 200m), Austin Robertshaw (200m), Paddy Canterbury and Will Klinkenberg (400m), Ollie Clarke, Ed Barlow and Harry Bodington (1500m), Jack Friend and Karl Still (1500m).

The combined performances of the whole team ensured that Blundell’s finished as Runners-Up – the first time the school has received this trophy as far as we can recall. The boys were a credit to the school throughout the day.
