Following on from their convincing win at Plymouth College, the U19 1st V Squash team travelled to Manchester to play in the Semi Finals of the National Schools Championships on Tuesday, 19 March.
They played Wycombe Abbey in the morning and won 5-0, not dropping a game. In the finals, they played Newcastle Central and won 4-1, and only lost games to a nationally ranked player.
The Trophy competition was introduced in 2009 as a way of expanding the event and giving additional competition for the schools and colleges that did not make it through to the second stage of the main championships. In the five years the trophy has been running Downe House, has now won it three times.
