Twenty Norwich School runners competed in the second of the East Anglian League (EAL) Cross Country fixtures last Saturday and our cross country teams enjoyed another successful fixture.
Mr Hudson who organises the Norwich School Cross Country team, highlighted some of the individual achievements:
“In the Junior Boys race, Nicholas Conway made it two wins out of two, while Ryan Gray, Arthur Dannatt and Joel Fox also finished in the top six.
“In the Girls race, two outstanding performances from 4th formers (Years 7 & 8), competing against much older athletes, stole the show. Chloe Holmes came 4th in the race while Bea Wells came 2nd. With Emily Cahir and Kitty Taylor in 3rd and 5th, and strong runs from Amy Griffiths and Gabi Elwell, the girls easily secured first place in the team event.
“In recent years Norwich School has been setting the standard in the EAL by bringing more and more Juniors to the races”
It is worth pointing out that Chloe Holmes became the first L4 (Year 7) girl to compete in the East Anglian League – a competition that has traditionally been contested among older pupils only.
Mr Hudson continued:
“In the Inter Boys, William Blythe-Bartram was 2nd, Daniel Conway 3rd and Luke Fox 6th.
“In the Senior Boys we took the top 4 places with James Price in 1st, Angus Toms 2nd, Patrick Thomas 3rd and George Corson 4th. Zach Taylor, Benji Fischer and Josh Kohler helped to cement the Senior Boys' team win.”
Well done to everyone who participated!
