A huge congratulations to all students who competed at the Leicestershire and Rutland schools County cross-country championship, held at Ratcliffe College on Saturday 3rd February.

In the first race of the day the year 7 girls had a great run in very testing underfoot and cold conditions. After a fast start the girls were quite happy to stay with the chasing group finishing strongly as a pack right to the line, taking 5th team spot.

In the year 7 boys race, Jonty Brotherton was the star runner of the day finishing in 8th place and gaining County honours in qualifying for a National fixture in March. Team mates Calvin M and Jean Pierre had fantastic runs for their first cross country races to come 16th and 29th place. Much more to come from this boys team in the future!

In the junior girls race Aoife Brotherton had a strong run gaining places in the second half of the race to finish 23rd place with Zahara coming home in a solid 44th place.

In the junior boys race Joel Kendrick ran his first cross country race and stuck with the chasing group working hard in the second section of the race to finish 13th place and narrowly miss out on county selection. Harkeem battled the hard under foot conditions and rain running a well paced 34th place.

A great effort by all students and many smiling faces remained at the finish line, well done to all!
