Sporting Round Up

Truro School’s sports teams have been busy across various disciplines recently. From athletics to rounders, tennis to football, and even representing the school on an international level, our pupils have been achieving remarkable feats.

The athletics teams participated in the Track and Field Cup at Carn Brea, with commendations to all participants. A big well done to our cricket teams for their successful games against Penair in their first games of the season.  The rounders teams from 1st to 4th Year played their first triangular fixture against Redruth and Camborne Academy. Truro School’s 1st XI played a 20/20 game against Plymouth College. Despite Plymouth’s win, Josh C (4th year) scored an unbeaten 50 and his first 6.

In tennis, Jonny won the U16 singles final and was runner-up in the U14 singles at the Kerrier Open. Jonny and Jacob also won the U14 doubles, and Millie won both the U16 singles and doubles titles. Well done to Lilia who won the U18 doubles title with her partner in Bridgewater over the bank holiday weekend. The title comes after her U16 singles win last month in Wellington. Well done all!

Poppy, Fenella, Matilda, and Sanna, represented St Agnes U14 Whites football team, who reached the League Cup final, showing great progress in their first mixed league season. Daisy H, Naomi H, and Dan G qualified for European championships in laser run and triathlete events as part of the Modern Pentathlon circuit.

Ollie and Joshua met Prince William during his visit to Cornwall, representing Holywell Bay SLSC, which is nominated for the prestigious King’s Award for Voluntary Service. Prince William played volleyball with the children and engaged with them during his visit.
