Earlier this month students Jasper, Cameron and Theodore headed to Exeter for the South East Regional Boccia Competition.

Cameron had quite a tough time and only managed to win one of his matches although his other games were close. Theodore got through the group stages but failed to make an impact in the semi-final. He lost his semi-final match, ending up in 4th place. Unfortunately, neither Cameron nor Theodore managed to qualify for the Nationals in April but they do have... another chance to secure a place at the Boccia Open competition in Sheffield later this month.

Jasper had an amazing day, beating ex-Treloar‘s student James Clowes in his opening match 3.2. His next match was a thriller. His opponent took 1 point on the first 3 ends leaving Jasper a lot to do going into the final end 3.0 down. After some quite brilliant play from Jasper, he won the match 4.3. One more win for Jasper in his round robin competition would mean winning the gold medal and qualifying for the Nationals in April. Jasper took it all in his stride, unlike his parents and coach, and won the match 3.2.

Immediately after the competition they headed to Cheltenham for the regional event the following morning. This time it was only Jasper entered in the event and he was once again amazing. Winning through to the knock out stage, he once again beat ex-Treloar's student James Clowes in the semis to take him through to the final. On this occasion his opponent (GB talent athlete) was just too strong and Jasper had to settle for second place and the silver medal.
