As champions of Cornwall, the Truro School Under 14 Girls’ badminton team went on to represent the county at the South West Finals last week at the Plymouth Life Centre and impressed with a silver medal winning display.
South-West Silver Medal Winning Girls’ Badminton Team: Melissa, Sophie, Rosie, Nila and Elizabeth.
The girls started superbly with a group victory over reigning champions Somerset. The team then went on to triumph over Bishop Fox School and Katharine Lady Berkeley School to finish top of their group.
With team spirit high, the girls approached the final full of belief. Standing in the way of a regional gold medal were Group B winners Hardenhuish School, champions of Wiltshire.
The first two matches of the final were very close but both went the way of the Wiltshire girls. Sadly Hardenhuish went on to establish their superiority and win the gold medals leaving our girls as very worthy silver medal winners.
