Berkshire Schools Cross Country Championships
A great result at the (very cold!) Berkshire Schools Cross Country Championships at Newbury Showground on Saturday 21st January with winners in both the U15 and U17 races. Thibault Mingret (Year 9) had a clear victory in the U15 boys with Alex Calver coming a very respectable 26th. Ben Dewar (Year 11) had more of a battle in the U17 race, with a final 300m sprint securing a win. Jack Perkins ran his first race in the UK and did well in the U17 inter-boys. Finally, James Hookham ran in the U19 race, coming 13th over a distance of 7.09km. A tough race!
Ben and Thibault will run for Berkshire at the England Schools Cross Country final in Nottingham in March.
Many thanks to Mrs Dewar for being Team Manager on the day.
