FOUR Plymouth College pupils will compete at European Pentathlon Championship events this summer.

Kerenza Bryson, 16, and Myles Pillage, 17, will both represent Great Britain at the Youth A competition in the Czech Republic between July 8 and 12.

The duo have previously won international medals, with Bryson helping GB to team gold in the same competition last year and Myles claiming an individual and team bronze at the Youth B European Championships.

Meanwhile, fellow pupils Eimear O’Neill (Ireland) and Anne Kleidon (Germany), who are both 16, will take part in the Youth B European Pentathlon Championships in Portugal between July 24 and 27.

The pair are both national champions of their own countries.

O’Neill is the second Plymouth College pupil to represent Ireland this year, as in May Paddy Erskine, 18, competed at the European Junior Pentathlon Championships in Bulgaria.

The college’s director of modern pentathlon and fencing, Andy Hill said: “I am delighted that Plymouth College is again being represented at the European Championships.

“These selections are well deserved and come on the back of some great results for the athletes involved.”
