Fourth Place Success for Cross Country Team

On Tuesday 14 January pupils from the Junior and Senior School travelled to Lincroft School in Bedford to take part in the Cross Country 2014 Bedfordia Championships.

With 30 schools attending the championships, all races were highly contended with over 200 pupils competing in each of the races. The course was extremely treacherous, with pupils having to endure inclines, single file tracks and muddy fields.

All the Cokethorpe runners performed extremely well, with a special mention to Ben Wannell (Lower First, Feilden) who finished in eighth place after running an group above in the Year 8 Boys race and to Georgie Vallance (Upper First, Vanbrugh) who finished in twelfth place in the Year 8 Girls race.

Overall Cokethorpe finished in fourth place, a fantastic result with so many schools and strong runners competing! Well done to all the pupils that competed, all of them attacked the course whole heartedly and had a fantastic attitude.
