A host of talented squash players battled it out for bragging rights at a special competition.
Rydal Penrhos’ annual Senior Inter-House Squash competition last week, which was once again a highly competitive event with good representation from all four houses.
The girls’ category saw defending champion Emily Cashell advance to the semi-finals after coming through the group stages, where she was pitted against Payne’s Keira Bonnington.
Emily managed to put her experience to good use throughout, coming through 2-0 to advance to the final to take on close friend and Osborn teammate Sam Randall, who defeated Amy Cole-King of Wesley House by the same margin.
Another fantastic performance from Emily saw her emerge victorious 9-4 and 9-5 to see her pick up the individual title for the second year in succession.
The boys’ event was equally as competitive, with outstanding group stage contributions from Llywelyn Cowell, Nick Hetherington, Max Robinson and Josh Thomas not enough to see them progress to the semi-final stage.
Defending champion Matthew Trumper took on fellow Upper Sixth Former Henry Maitland-Davies in the final after both came through their respective final four clashes against Matt Fiorita and Rafeez Mortuza.
After Matthew took the first set 9-7, Henry was forced to conceded following an ankle injury in the second to leave his opponent with a second triumph in as many years.
Osborn were crowned overall house winners with 45 points, with Morgan some way behind on 30 from their efforts.
Wesley (25pts) and Payne (10pts) completed the placings.
