Success at the Anglian XC Championships
Kimbolton athletes represent Cambridgeshire in the English Schools' Cross Country Regional Championships held at Abington Park, Northampton.
Kimbolton had a record participation in the English Schools' Cross Country Regional Championships held at Abington Park, Northampton recently, with seven athletes selected to represent Cambridgeshire. Our pupils were competing against Lincolnshire, Norfolk, Northants and Suffolk with each county sending 14 runners for each race – the day was perfect for cross-country running.
The highlight of the event was a thrilling bronze medal from Rafferty in the Minor Boys race, who showed his trademark determination to fend off a pack of five Suffolk boys by eight seconds.
In an exciting Minor Girls race Clara finished 13th and Thea 22nd. The Junior Boys (Y8 & Y9) race was very competitive; Second Former Harrison was 4th home for Cambridgeshire and should be pleased with his 13th placing. Fiinally, Pippa competed in the Senior Girls race and finished 17th.
Great performances from all our runners - well done!
