Sports Round-Up (22-28 May)30 May 2023
Track and Field Cup at Carn Brea Athletics Track
Last week saw four of our Athletics teams produce history-making performances in the Track and Field Cup – a competition held throughout the entire country.
Our Junior Girl’s team finished as county runners-up, and our Intermediate Girl’s team finished in third position – Penryn College’s best-ever results from all-girls teams and very well deserved.
Meanwhile, our Junior Boy’s and Intermediate Boy’s teams were both crowned county champions, demonstrating their fantastic teamwork, talent and hard work to record scores that rank them in the top eight schools in the south west for their age categories.
The results mean that our Junior Boy’s and Intermediate Boy’s teams have qualified for the Regional A finals in Millfield – the first-ever teams to do so in the school’s history.
Additionally, our Junior Girl’s team have also qualified for the Regionals, which will take place in Exeter.
A huge well done to all athletes, who have taken responsibility for improving their personal bests, and shown ambition in the competitions. Full results, with individual performances, can be found by clicking here.

Strong performances across the team with the bat and ball saw Harry P register an unbeaten 69, whilst Eli P took his first-ever wicket and Rowan L demonstrated some fantastic play in the field.
Well done, boys!
U12/13 and U14 Boy’s Cricket v Camborne (Home)

It was a first experience of hardball cricket for a number of our students, and offered others the opportunity to face some county-level players.
A shoutout to U12/13 player, Noah R, who recorded his first-ever half-century as part of a fantastic partnership with Dan M.
Well done, everyone!
