Year 8 Atheletics Report
Y8 athletes took part in Plymouth and West Devon championships at Brickfields on Tuesday 16t June.
A team of 7 made up from 5 girls and 2 boys from Year 8. Girls were Leah Parnell-Moses (100m & High Jump/relay) Emily Frost (200m/relay) Mia Cole (200m/relay) Izzy Hiller (long jump) Sophie Isaacs (Shot)
Boys Gabriel Schraibman (100m hurdles/200m) Ben Edmunds (1500m/long jump)
A winning start with Gabriel Schraibman running to 1st place in an excellent 100m hurdles field. Next the 100m girls sprint saw another Tavistock 1st place with and excellent run from Leah Parnell-Moses who out in a PB and fastest overall time over 2 heats.
Mia Cole ran a very good race in the 800M coming 3rd in a very strong field which included county runners.
Emily Frost ran home 1st in the girls 200m, putting in a great performance.
Ben Edmunds ran an excellent 1500m to come home in 4th place and was also placed in the long jump event, competing very well.
An injury to Schraibman (hip) during the 200m was enough to rule out further success, but to his testament he carried on, finishing the race showing real determination.
Isabel Hillier took 3rd place in the girls long jump and Leah Parnell-Moses came in1st place in the girls high jump with another PB, beating a strong field.
The big finish didn’t disappoint with Tavistock again taking 1st place honours in an excellent 4x100m relay. The team of Frost, Parnell-Moses, Cole and Hillier took a very deserved 1st place and finished the event with the fastest relay time overall.
An excellent and talented Athletics team who represented the college in style.
Year 8 Girls Cricket
The year 8 Girls’ Cricket team played fantastically well on Wednesday 17th June came runners up in Devon in the county finals in Torquay.
Playing against Torquay Academy and South Dartmoor College, Tavistock were both strong with the bat and decisive in the field.
Izzy Hillier and Darcey Brown were our highest run scores and our main wicket takers were Leah Parnell-Moses and Captain Mione Shaw.
Tavistock won their opening game in the tri-series beating Torquay by 4 runs and with Torquay losing their other game to South Dartmoor, it left a showdown in the final game.
Tavistock set a target 59 off their 60 balls and took early wickets. However, with a good batting performance South Dartmoor surpassed the target making a further 26 runs.
Well done to all of the students involved:
Mione Shaw, Darcey Brown, Sophie Isaac, Katie Gray, Katelyn Lees, Mia Cole, Izzy Hillier, Charlotte Able, Catlin Bond, Niamh Matthews, Leah Parnell-Moses.
Year 10 Rounders
We had a great turn out from the GCSE and other members of year 10 for a rounders fixture against Launceston. The boys played first and had a great game with some excellent batting and fielding skills which resulted with the boys gaining a win.
The girls then had a great game where they kept a close scoreline until the last 8 balls when the Launceston boys got several of our players out. The final result was a lose but it was a great close game.
The final game was a mixed team which was very exciting it went down to the last ball when Ryan Brimacombe had to get a rounder to win the game, so no pressure at all!!! Ryan played a great game and secured a rounder which meant we won the game.
The year 10s played with great sporting etiquette and where a credit to the College.
