A different target for College Sports Day

Image: Okehampton College Sports Day 2018For the non-runners, jumpers and throwers, West Devon Swords was able to offer an alternative sporting experience for Okehampton College pupils at the annual sports day in July.

A split session of archery and Go Fence foil provided competition of a different sort alongside the usual athletics programme.

With two year groups participating on a grey but decidedly warm and humid day, we expected a swift exit, but a hard core group of enthusiasts stayed on the range and in fencing masks perfecting their techniques until the lunch bell.

We hope to return to the College for classes in the Autumn term.
