Cross-Country athletes making the grade - November 2012

42 students represented Writhlington School in the B&NES District Cross-Country Championships at Kingswood School on Thursday 8th November. All students conducted themselves well in cold conditions and produced some very pleasing performances.

Iwan Tudor in Year 7 deserves particular praise for his convincing win in the Minor Boys race, where he ran home almost a minute before the rest of the competition. Tuso Makombe, also in Year 7, finished strongly in 8th position.

Other notable performances came from Minty Hampden-Martin in Year 10, who finished 6th and Syd Lethridge in Year 12 , who finished 5th in the 6.6km Senior Boys race. These four students are likely to be selected to represent B&NES in the County Round of the competition on Saturday 12th January.
Well done to all Writhlington students who took part and good luck to those students who will continue to the next round.
