Cross Country race report

On Saturday 1st February, we had a group of athletes competing in the Merseyside County Championships, held at Arrowe Park.
 
In the Senior race, Johnston won the race, with Joinson coming in 3rd place. This ensured their qualification to represent Merseyside at the English Schools Championships, along with Fernando Izquierdo Bernard (Year 13). In Year 10 & 11, Joshua Hale performed exceptionally well, in a tough field, coming in 3rd position with Harry Ross Hughes (Year 11) in 12th place, securing the last available Merseyside vest.
 
In Year 8 & 9, our students performed well in a competitive race, with good races from Seb Thorpe and Lewis Greenhalgh (both Year 8). Finally, in Year 7, Sam Clark came in 10th position as he too grabbed a Merseyside place for the upcoming fixture against Cheshire.
 
A fantastic effort by all selected athletes and congratulations to those students who secured Merseyside selection for races after the February half-term holiday!
