Cross Country

— It’s not how fast you run, but how long you run fast.

…and 3 of our year 9 pupils have most certainly being doing that. The boys competed on Saturday 16th November and Saturday 30th November in the Warrington School’s Cross Country Championship heats at Walton Gardens.

From left to right; Luke Gamble, Jack Stubbings and Jamie Pickett teamed up to form the Sir Thomas Boteler U15s team and achieved remarkable success. Jamie finished a very respectable 10th and 6th position and is new to the sport, with the more experienced Luke Gamble finishing 4th, putting in a great effort on the return to full fitness after a lengthy injury. Jack Stubbings has been the star performer and has produced some outstanding performances. Jack won both events against a very strong field across a very difficult course, winning the most recent race by 200m.

Congratulations to all 3 boys and I look forward to their continued success this school year, where it is hoped they have achieved qualification to the English Schools team event.

I must also take this opportunity to thank the parents of all 3 boys who continue to support such events and school sport.
