A quartet of hockey county champions at Truro High School
Against tough competition from Cornwall’s best young players, the school’s under 11, 13, 14 and 15 teams have all been crowned as the top hockey teams in Cornwall.
The news comes as the under 15 team rounded off an extremely successful season by claiming the County Knockout Cup earlier this month.
Over the course of the season, the girls have beaten off formidable opponents to claim this prestigious title. The first round saw the team beat Bude School 3-0 followed by a resounding 4-0 semi-final victory against Truro School. The young players were crowned county champions as they stormed to victory in the knockout final with a 2-1 win against Helston College.
The team’s fantastic success follows resounding victories for Truro High’s under 11, 13 & 14 hockey players in county championship tournaments.
November saw the under 14 hockey team storm to victory in their County Championship Cup finals whilst this spring the under 13 team remained undefeated throughout the entire Cornwall Schools Girls In2Hockey tournament held at Truro School and Penair. The girls went on to play in the regional finals held at Clifton College where they placed 5th overall and just missed out going through to the semi-finals by only one goal.
The school’s under 11s were also jumping for joy when they won every match they played in the county championship by an average of eight goals. Even more impressive, it is the fifth year running that the under 11 team have triumphantly returned to school with this title.
Director of Sport, Ms Kat Barbery-Redd said: “We have our fair share of sporting stars at Truro High and we’re absolutely thrilled with the teams’ successes! The girls have worked incredibly hard this season to up their game and results speak for themselves. With the girls returning from the regional finals having put in some of their best performances in years, we’re sure it won’t be long before our players are also raising the South West trophies above their heads.”
