Rugby

Despite missing a few key players, the U16’s won the county 10’s tournament last week without losing a game, beating Newquay Treviglas in the final. They are also undefeated in the 15-a-side format and are having an excellent season, with all members of the team representing Truro School with a great attitude and work ethic.

Football

Ethan Elwell (SF07) has been selected for the Cornwall U18’s side and was involved for Cornwall as they beat Bedfordshire in the FA County Youth Cup.

Numerous national cup games have been played over the last 2 weeks. The U15’s produced the performance of the fortnight with a 3-1 win away to Bristol Grammar School. It was a great team performance, with special mention to Joe Moran who bagged a hat-trick. However the most pleasing aspect of the day was that the boys played the game in the right spirit and were a credit to the school.

Hockey

The U16’s girls Hockey team are county champions! 10 teams competed and Truro School emerged victorious, beating the High School in the final. They went the whole day without conceding a goal in the whole tournament! Congratulations to all involved.

Fencing

Over this weekend our fencers continued on their quest to gain national ranking points before the first international selections are made and this time we ventured to London for the Under 17 and Under 20 British Ranking Event. On the Saturday in the U17 Boys’ sabre, Max Cromie continued his run of form with back to back podiums securing another well-earned bronze. Darcy Holdsworth followed fast on his heels with a solid 6th place.

On the Sunday our senior girls were in action in the U20 women’s sabre event. Maia Fashokun stormed to victory with a fine display of form, putting her pre-season work into good practice. Molly Wood secured an excellent bronze place, losing to Maia in the semis and Hannah O’Reilly finished in 7th. In U20 men’s sabre event Luke Haynes finished with an outstanding bronze place, demonstrating calm and composure throughout the day. Darcy

Holdsworth built on his efforts from the previous day with another quarter final finishing in 6th.
