OBERON High School students travelled to Canowindra last week for round two of the Rural Cup.
After defeating Molong Central School in round one, the students had high hopes they would be able to retain the coveted trophy for yet another year.
Students participated in team and individual sports as well as cerebral challenges such as chess and the super quiz.
Many of the students were involved in a variety of events across the day.
Despite some strong performances by Oberon students, Canowindra were convincing winners and the trophy had to be left at Canowindra High School.
The Oberon students have vowed to come back stronger than ever next year and win back the trophy.
