From the top to the bottom in one easy stage.
That was the experience of Combe House at Torrington County Secondary School sports on Thursday week. As Cleave House soared to the top to win the shield by a substantial margin, Combe, the holders, sank to fourth position.
Points gained: Cleave, 116½; Leigh, 91½; Barton, 85; Combe, 84.
In the picture the two captains, of Cleave House, Michael Woolacott and Gwen Copp, are seen receiving the shield from Mrs M E Pitts. On the right is the headmaster, Mr J W Bastin.
The various events were keenly contested and three school records were broken.
In the senior shot Stephen Broer achieved 34ft 9in as against 34ft. Sally Darch created a new record of 13ft 10in for the senior girls’ long jump, and J Hewitt, with 4ft 3in, a new record in the junior girls’ high jump.
