27 February - Fives Triumph

Fives_1

The Fives team has gone from strength to strength recently, with impressive away results against Eton and Westminster.  Year 9s were triumphant in the U14s Regional 3 Pair Championships, with Sachin and Louis improving throughout the day.  Year 10s impressed at the U15s Individuals Tournament at Harrow with Charles and James victorious against Sohayl and his Mill Hill partner.  Further up the school, Tomas Gallagher has been making great waves on the Fives circuit and his good form continued as he teamed up with 5 Old Olavians who are amongst the top adult players in the country to win the Alan Barber Cup and, thus become the first schoolboy to do so.  At the recent Northern Adult Championships, U16 Morgan paired up with Captain, Josh, in the Festival section of the tournament to make quick work of their adult opponents and reach the Final without dropping a set.  The Final itself saw Josh and Morgan play some stunning and simply outrageous Fives so that the game raced by in a flash to leave our pair victorious, with another addition to the Olavian trophy cabinet.
