English Schools Cross Country Cup Qualifying Round (Graves Park)


Some excellent running from our 6 runners taking part in this popular cross country race. All the hard work that these guys are putting in is starting to show.

Our Junior Girls were out in force with Annie Naylor yet again coming away with the win going from strength to strength to each week. The fast improving Polly Platts again ran really strongly to finish in 5th place. They were backed up by Katie Smith who ran well to come home in 16th Place. All 3 girls were part of their school team that won the team event and qualified for the finals later on in the year.

Maggie Naylor is getting better each week and went in the Inter Girls race finishing strongly to come home in 22nd place.

Annie Naylor wasn’t getting all the glory as Jamie Rhodes stormed to victory in the Junior Boys race. Jamie is finally getting the confidence and believing in himself that he can go out hard and win races. Much more to come from Jamie as the cross country season goes on. Joseph Close stumbled at the first corner and hurt his ankle but carried on to come home in 50th place.

Well done everyone some great results.
