J. Shuter and J. Domoney (Inter Boys) along with T. Musselwhite (Junior Boys) have all been selected to represent Wiltshire at the South West Schools Cross Country Championships on Saturday 7th February at Grittledon School near Chippenham.
J. Shuter narrowly missed out a medal after finishing 4th in the Inter Boys race with J. Domoney close behind in 6th. Both boys ran well even though they took the wrong course at one point. A lesson I am sure they will learn from in time for their Wiltshire race which will be held at the same venue! B. Saunby our other athlete in the age group finished 26th after losing his shoe on the muddy course.
T. Musselwhite, in the Junior Boys race, finished in 10th place to secure his selection. O. Taylor was a creditable 16th; a place I know he will try to better next year.
J. Thompson was our only runner in the Minor Boys finished in 22nd place.
All the boys were a credit to the school and I look forward to bringing you news of our County athletes in a couple of weeks’ time.
