Witham Hall Cross Country to Worksop College Championships

13 Mar 2017

Our Cross Country team have been training really hard of late, showing excellent commitment on a Monday lunch time; with some members of the team choosing to attend additional training on a Tuesday and Friday lunch time! We returned to Worksop as reigning champions in the whole team event and the Senior Girls category, keen to bring more silverware back with us to Witham. 

There was a real ‘one for all and all for one’ atmosphere amongst the Witham team, with every member counting towards our overall result. Max really personified this as he was our last runner over the line in the U13 boys’ race; giving it everything he had, battling shoulder to shoulder for 37th place, with the whole of the Witham team cheering him over the line.

After a wonderful match tea in the grand Dinning Hall, everyone settled down for the presentations made by Worksop College’s Headmaster. 5 Witham children collected individual awards for placing in the top 5, 3 of which were racing against children a year or two older than them. We were also awarded first place in both the U11 and U13 Girls competitions. The U11 Boys placed 2nd, and the U13 Boys placed 4th. Our captains Jaz and Finn collected the top prize for the Over All Team! All of the children’s results and times are in the table below – well done! Thank you to all of our supporters on the day and to Mrs Morgan-Jones and Mr O’Conner for their help on the day.
