National place for Petroc

Joseph Bulmer

PETROC Water Polo team has qualified for the national schools finals after an outstanding performance at the English Schools Southern Plate Championships, which was hosted by historic Charterhouse in Surrey.

After a slow start and a narrow 2-1 loss to a strong Eton team, Petroc moved into top gear and played excellent polo to thrash Northampton 8-0 and Harrow 6-0.

With a draw needed to progress to the national championships, the boys did just that against hosts Charterhouse, drawing 3-3 to qualify for the national plate championships.

Petroc team members were Freddie Hedger, Joel Simpson, Sean Deasy, Jack Sherborne, Zak Lawton, Peter Bull, Ollie Cornish, Cory Lawson and Jack Hutchens.
