8 October 2009 / High School Celebrates Two National Sports Stars

Despite being a year young for the competition, Jordanna's outstanding performances in all five events put her in 5th place overall and earned her the position of reserve on the England team for the International schools combined event competition in December.

Her overall score of 2893 points - a personal best - has also moved her to No 7 in the UK rankings.

The competition, which tested the girls' abilities in shot putt, 75m hurdles, high jump, long jump and the 800m, took place in Bedford last week. All four of the South West team attend Truro-based schools. The team's second best scorer, Lottie Richardson - also a High School girl, finished 8th overall.

The High School girls' other two team members were Kiani Payne of Truro School and Alice Vage of Penair School. They finished 22nd and 28th respectively.

Headmistress of Truro High School, Caroline Pascoe, a former British Olympian, said: "With just one event to go the South West team was lying in third place making the 800m a nail-biting finale. When the final results were announced the girls were jubilant with 2nd place and a new South West record of 8263 points!

"Lottie and Jordanna are both outstanding sports women who work extremely hard and deserve all their success. They are both great assets to the school and excellent role models. We congratulate them and their team mates on this latest achievement."
