Well done to Felipe Stervid, who finished 3rd overall in the U15 Festival last week. There was also strong performances from Nathan Patel and Guy Wilkinson.

Athletics

The final Saturday of term saw the athletes return to Marlborough to take on the hosts as well as other visiting teams of Abingdon, Kingswood, St Edward’s, Lord Wandsworth College and Winchester House. Both of the Junior and the Senior teams finished runners up and the Inter team finished in a commendable 4th place. In the senior competition Jack Ashton won the Hurdles in the A string, several good performances saw Conor Rees win the B string 800m and Michael Geaney winning the B string long jump.

In the Junior Boys Ben Sims won the 1500m by 16 seconds in a fine time of 4 minutes and 36 seconds, Jack Lipman came second in the 800m in another personal best time of 2 minutes 11 seconds, Andre Ljubic came second in the high jump and Felix Macphail came second in the long jump.

And in the inter boys returning yr 11 athlete Oyare Aneju won the 400m and came second in the discus. His younger brother Ebo came second in the triple jump but performance of the day goes to an athlete that has had a superb season – going from strength to strength – Roshan Mowat who gained another PB by jumping 1.90metres in the high jump. This is quite staggering as Roshan is only 1.82m tall!

Team of the week – 1st team tennis players for finishing in the last 16 at ISTA

Performance of the day – James Coles for his back to back centuries v KES B’ham (113) and Brighton College (126*)
