Brothers Jack and Kitt Stephens have had a pretty eventful summer competing in Tetrathlon competitions in the UK and Ireland. Both boys represented Wales and the Borders with Year 9 pupil Kitt in the Junior boy tetrathlete category and Year 11 pupil Jack in the Intermediate category. Both boys came top in their respective categories.
They were both selected to represent Wales and Borders in the UK Regionals which included teams from Ireland. Kitt’s team came third behind two Irish teams but Jack and his intermediate boys’ team won, bringing home the coveted Dragon trophy for a second year running.
Earlier in the summer Kitt was part of a junior team competing in the Irish Tetrathlon Championships at Tattersalls near Dublin while Jack won four out of the four competitions he entered. Highlight of the season for Jack was winning the UK Senior Regionals, competing against boys selected to compete for their region from around the UK and Ireland. Jack went on to win the Nationals later in the summer. Congratulations to both boys on fantastic performances and teamwork.
