Myles Pillage and Kerenza Bryson Youth A European Pentathlon ChampionshipsPLYMOUTH’S top modern pentathletes impressed at the second national ranking event of the year in Bath at the weekend.

Myles Pillage, who will make his World Cup debut later this month in Los Angeles, finished fourth overall in the men’s competition and first junior.

Pillage finished with a total of 1,332 points, with Sam Curry winning the title with a score of 1,393.

Unfortunately, Plymouth College’s Ed Clark had to withdraw from the men’s competition during the fencing due to injury.

Plymouth Studio School’s Kerenza Bryson, who finished as top Brit at last month’s Hungarian Indoor Competition, was sixth overall in a strong women’s category at Bath and second junior.

Bryson, up against Olympians Kate French and Sam Murray, impressed in the fencing but the ride cost her a higher placing.

She finished with a total of 1,258 points. French won the title and was the only athlete to top 1,300 points, collecting an impressive 1,341.

There was success in the under-19 event for Plymouth College’s Georgina Mitchell.

Mitchell finished second overall, just behind Olivia Green.

The Plymouth student particularly impressed in the fencing and combined run-shoot disciplines to finish with a total of 985 points. Green won with 1,001.

Fellow Plymouth College pupil Lauren Singleton came 21st. The under-19s didn’t have a riding event.
