An Outstanding Week for Sport

It has been a busy week for sport across both the Prep and Senior school this week, with pupils enjoying being active in the lovely Cornish sunshine.

Our U12 and U13 teams participated in the Cornwall School Games Cricket and Rounders qualifier. The cricket team won their round qualifying for the finals in June, and the rounders team took 3rd place, narrowly missing out on the finals. Our U15 mixed rounders team also won their qualifier for the CSG, so they will join the cricket team to compete in the finals in June.

Congratulations to the girls’ U15 Cricket team, who won the County Cricket 8’s tournament this week. It was great to see lots of fantastic cricket being played.

Our athletics teams had a fantastic week as both the Girls’ and Boys’ teams competed at the ESSA Track and Field Cup this week. There were some fantastic results across both teams, and it was wonderful to see the teams back out in full flow again. Meanwhile, outside of school, Dan became county champion in the 800m as well as took 3rd place in an into-tri, and Archie and Rowan both competed in the U11 track events for two top-three finishes. Well done, everyone!

The tennis teams have also had lots of success, with both the U9 and U11 teams winning the majority of their games again, Truro High this week. And our 1st and 2nd-year teams both had great success at their county championships, with both the boys and girls finishing 2nd.

Badminton had lots of wins this week as well with our U13 and U17 players. Evie N and James F both took the triple win in their singles, doubles, and mixed doubles games. Ben M won the boys’ doubles and was runner-up in the singles to his teammate. Woody also had a great result with a win in the U17 Boys doubles. Mrs Norfolk commented on how fantastic the players represented Truro School on and off the court.

Outside of School, Poppy T competed in the coveted Badminton Grassroots Championship in Gloucestershire, having qualified at the regional finals last year. Poppy competed in the BE 90 division and, despite being the youngest competitor, placed 37th out of 102.

Finally, our U11 Football team played in the Rosewarne Cup. The first game they played was for the West Cornwall champions, which they won against a very strong Alverton team. This qualified them for the ‘super finals’ West vs East, where despite a strong start, they were pipped to the post with a late second goal from the opposition.

Congratulations to all our Athletes!
