King Henry Relay - 2020

Last Wednesday, 5th February, our Senior team took part in the prestigious King Henry relay event, held at King Henry school in Coventry. Our team was quite depleted through illness and injury, so we hoped for a top 10 finish which would have been a good result, given the circumstances.
However, our team exceeded expectations with all 6 runners producing fantastic performances. Louis Johnston completed the 2.3 mile course in the 10th fastest time of 11.48. Joshua Hale and Finan Johnston consolidated our position in 4th place. Joe Joinson produced a gutsy leg to stay in touch with 4th place and Harry Ross Hughes closed the gap even further. Fernando Izqueirdo Bernard ran a superb last leg to bring us home in 4th place; an outstanding achievement for the boys and College.
Our team came 44th and as this was a mixed team ranging from Year 7-12, it bodes well for future competitions.
Well done to all the runners who took part!

Mr S. Simpson
