CROSS COUNTRY
Posted on: | Category:

English Schools Athletics Cross Country Cup On Tuesday 12 October a team of Junior and Intermediate athletes travelled to Stoke Park in Guildford for the ESAA Cross Country Competition which is open to schools across Surrey and acts as a qualifier for the regional finals. In the Junior event (2.4km), a team of Year 8 runners (banner photo, above) made up of Josh Y-W, Gautam P, Ethan J and Leon D took part. Josh led the way amongst the Wilson's quartet with Gautam closely following and Leon just behind. Ethan showed great strength and determination to sprint to the finish line. The boys finished in 18th, 19th, 20th and 22nd places, a great team effort..!!

The Inter Boys team consisted of two Year 9 students and three Year 10. From the outset, Alex L (9C) was ruthless, setting a tempo Mo Farah would have been proud of. He maintained the tempo looking even stronger as the 4km course drew to a close, finishing in a very well-deserved 1st place (photo, below).

Next to cross the line was Bruno S (10C) in 13th overall, followed right behind by Josh A (9C) and Thuisijanth E (10G) in 17th. The final Wilson's runner home was Thomas H (10G) in 24th.

An excellent team performance and we wait to see if it was enough to gain a place in the next round.
