Last weekend the Country Junior Champs were fought out at Truro Squash club in all the major age groups in order to crown the top junior age group players from around Cornwall.
Truro School was again strongly represented and several of our players fought their way through to the latter rounds of this prestigious event.
In the under 13s Truro took 5 of the top 6 places as follows: Ed Hayes 6th, Finlay Charles 5th, Ollie Beaumont 3rd, Louis Murray runner up and Jack Mahon Champion. All played with passion and power and were a credit to themselves and the school itself.
The other category where we were strongly represented was the under 15s where there was tremendous competition and we eventually finished with 4 in the top 6: George Purchas 6th, Ben Thorpe 5th, Louis Murray runner up and Jack Mahon champion. Both Louis and Jack are now top 10 National standard players.
All the participants are on considerable improvement curves and in contention for our National Schools team which commences campaigning against the other top Squash schools this term, with the goal of qualifying for the grand finals at The National Squash centre in March 2018.
