The school teams did exceptionally well in a Devon-wide table tennis tournament that took place at Eggbuckland Community College in Plymouth on 9 October.
The girls, Harriet, Isla, Holli and Mia, competed against one other girls’ team (one team dropped out), and drew with them after all their matches – no mean feat, as the rival team included the Devon champion, and Devon runner-up! In the end, it came down to an extra decider doubles match, which the other team won.
The boys, Alfie, Michael, Harry and Josh, played against four other boys’ teams, and won 20 of their 24 matches! However, the Okehampton team proved even stronger and went on to win for a second year.
Well done to both teams for being such close runners-up.
