Students Prove Themselves in Lightwater X Country Competition
On Tuesday 21 November 31 KS3 students descended on Lightwater Country Park for the annual District X Country event.
Much to our amazement we had a glorious day for running including the sun appearing at various points throughout the event! All students ran fantastically well against some strong competition.
Each year group had their own competition, split into boys and girls and the results were as follows; Year 7 Girls 3/10, Year 7 Boys 9/12, Year 8 Girls 2/4, Year 8 Boys 4/7, Year 9 Girls 2/6 and Year 9 Boys 9/12.
Every year we attend this event and the competition gets stronger and stronger so we were all very proud of these team results. Notable individual performances included Maddie Clifford 7D coming 4th, Lara Pearson 8A coming 7th, Jules Rabey 9E coming 2nd and Max Duckworth 9E also finishing 2nd. All the runners were a credit to the College and for some of them competing in their first event did fantastically well.
