Junior and intermediate athletes travelled to Horspath Athletic Stadium to compete in round 1 of the English School's Track and Field Cup. It was the first real test for the junior athletes at a big competition with numerous other schools in attendance. All boys rose to the challenge and helped the Abingdon squad finish in 3rd position.

The intermediate boys also performed well, with impressive performances from Archie Turnbull (High Jump), Liam O'Hickey (100m) and Will Sishton (Shot Putt). Special mention must go to Henry Insley and Freddie Cunningham who blew the competition away and had their own head to head battle in the 1500m, running shoulder to shoulder until the final 200m where Henry was able to kick away and take 1st ahead of Freddie.
