On Saturday 8 November the junior and Intermediate Boys cross country teams travelled to King’s Taunton to run in the Regional final of the England Schools Cross Country Cup.
The Intermediate boys performed admirably coming 5th out of 9 schools, only 1 point behind 4th place. Finn was our best placed athlete, coming in 3rd despite being a year young. He was followed by Alex (16th), Ben (23rd), Bertie (30th) Jordan (31st) and Fred (47th). The junior boys team performed excellently and have qualified for the National Finals by coming 2nd behind Millfield Prep. Harris was the star of the show coming in 1st place, closely followed by brother Elliot in 4th. Sam (15th), Benjy (22nd), George (30th) and James (48th) made up the rest of the team. This was a wonderful performance by the junior boys and is the 3rd year in a row that they have qualified for the National Finals.
The Final will be held close to home at Newquay on 29 November and we wish the boys the best of luck.
