8 July 2009 / High School's Summer Sports Triumph
The school's junior athletics cup team qualified for the Regional A final at Millfield as one of the top 8 schools in the South West, eventually finishing 2nd with an outstanding 344 points.
In the Cornwall Multi Events, Ellis Davey won the Minor Girls with Truro High School winning the team event in that class. In the Junior Girls, Lottie Richardson won and Jordanna Morrish was 2nd and again the High School girls won the team event in that age group.
Following this success the junior girls team went on to represent the county at South West Multi Events during which Lottie won with a national qualifying score, the eighth highest ever scored, including several new personal best (PB) results, with Jordanna close behind in second place. Cornwall won the team event with a record breaking score. Both Lottie, who is now ranked fourth in the UK for Multi Events, and Jordanna will represent Cornwall and the South West at the national Multi Events final in September.
Jordanna Morrish has also excelled at other competitions this summer breaking the county record with an incredible 1.71m in High Jump. She will be competing in the English Schools athletic competition in both hurdles and high jump.
With so many outstanding athletes as pupils the school's own annual sports day was a hard fought contest yielding some excellent results, some breaking existing school records.
