On Friday 28th March Panathlon visited Cambridge for our 2014 final at the incredible sports centre at the University of Cambridge. We had 67 students competing from 3 Boroughs with 7 students from Cambridge who could not compete as they did not have enough for a team but tried all the events on the day and thoroughly enjoyed their experience. A great day of competition between all Schools but the title was between rivals South Cambs and Hunts who every year can only be seperated by the smallest of margins. This year was no exception both finishing the day on 54 points and equal amount of wins, with the title having to be decided on head to head games. South Cambs came out on top winning 3 out of the 4 head to heads. Congratulations to South Cambs for retaining the title of winners 2014. With Hunts second and Witchford thrid. For the full set of result see here.
