For the first time in 8 years of competing at this event the weather was marvellous and conditions ideal for fast, aggressive running. That is exactly what we witnessed from our Under 9 girls team who blitzed the course with Olivia securing first place, Phoebe second, Georgina fourth, Imogen 14th, Alice 16th and Ava 18th. All the girls finishing in the top twenty allowed them to achieve a well-deserved first place in the team event. Edward 3rd and Sam 6th tried to emulate our girls with fantastic finishes but alas the boy’s team finished third. This was the same result for the Under 11 girls despite Katie 6th, Emma 10th, Sylvie 12th and Christie 17th which was a fantastic set of results but there was a strong Copthill team who really were on fire. The Under 11 boys also had some fabulous results with Peter winning his final race of his Grantham Prep. career and Matthew coming a close 4th. The team finished 3rd overall to cap a very entertaining and hard fought campaign. Mr Park
