36 of our pupils entered the championships, and George Carver (S UVI) won the coveted Shropshire U19 title - watched by his parents and the Headmaster.
A number of other Severn Hill boys also excelled themselves in the competition: Rob Cross (UVI) won the U19 Plate, Tom Edwards (IV) won the U17 plate, and 15-year-old Anton Nelson (IV) got through to the semi-finals in both the U17 competition (against Moser's Tiger Vechamamontien (IV)), and the U19 competition.
Anton Nelson also won the Sportsmanship Award.
