Pendle Athletic Club’s Gregan Baker headed Lancashire’s competitors at the end of a gruelling weekend in the Intermediate Boys’ Octathlon at the 2016 ESAA North-West Combined Events Regional Finals.

Alongside Joshua Van Der Linde, Cameron Massey and Nicholas Massey, the Park High School pupil competed in a total of eight different disciplines including long jump, discus, javelin, 400m, 100m hurdles, high jump, shot and 1500m.

The county finished in third place behind runners up Cumbria and champions Cheshire.

A statement from the club paid tribute to the boys’ efforts: “Particular well done to Gregan who did all this the day after his Park High School prom and after-prom party –needless to say he is still catching up on a bit of sleep!”
