Cokethorpe Second In Schools' Challenge National Quiz
The Cokethorpe team of Shannon Dalton (Lower Sixth, Swift), Samara Clark (Third Form, Feilden), Will Allen (Upper First, Vanbrugh) ably led by Elly Stradling (Lower Sixth, Swift) gave a good performance in the Regional Qualifier of the Schools' Challenge National Quiz.
They finished a close second to The Oratory School, who fielded a much more experienced team which had participated in the previous three years of the competition. Each team member attributed themselves well and despite their loss they have a chance of progressing through to the next round as a ‘lucky loser’ due to their impressive points total.
As this was Cokethorpe’s first entry into this prestigious competition it certainly bodes well for future success as the team gains more experience.
