On Saturday our three Wiltshire athletes, J Domoney, T Musselwhite and J Shuter ran in the above named championships at Grittledon School, near Chippenham. They were competing against teams from Avon, Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Gloucester and Somerset. All three were a credit to the school and improved on their placings within the Wiltshire teams.
T Musselwhite was the first to run in the Junior boys race and finished in 48th overall and 6th within the Wiltshire team, an improvement of 4 places.
Two races later saw J Shuter and J Domoney set off in the last race of the day. Both boys ran well and finished in 14th and 19th place respectively. This placed them 2nd and 4th within the Wiltshire team; both were two places higher than they finished in the County championships.
A big thank you to the boys for the commitment and dedication they have shown to their running this year; and to their parents for their support and for sending in the photographs!
We now await the announcement of the Wiltshire squad for the English Schools Cross Country Championships in Blackburn on March 21st.
