Cross Country Teams Run Well At Warwick And ESAA Regional Finals
Princethorpe College’s cross-country runners have been busy this month with the Warwickshire Inter Area in Stratford-upon-Avon on Saturday 5 November and the English Schools Cup Regional Final at Bromsgrove School one week later, on Saturday 12 November. Cross country running has always been a strength of the school, so it was great to see so many pupils taking part and upholding the tradition.
he College took 16 runners to the Inter Area event and 11 pupils qualified to run for Warwickshire in the Inter County Race which takes place tomorrow, Saturday 19 November at Himley Hall in Dudley. Good luck to Year 7s, Charlie Leech and James Bostock, Year 8, William Smith, Year 9s, Lily Hunter and Charlie Atkins, Year 10s, Evie Marston and Jesse Esler, and Year 11s, Ava Farren, Kate Pomerleau, Ben Smith and Felix Batty.
Princethorpe had qualified four teams to run in the ESAA Schools’ Cup Regional Final, a first for the school, and was delighted that the Senior Girls team ran superbly finishing third overall to earn themselves a place in National Finals that will take place on Saturday 3 December at The Grammar School Leeds. Commiserations to the Senior Boys who just missed out finishing fourth.
Head of Outdoor Education, Will Bower commented, "Well done to all of our runners, who put in a great effort against strong competition. I am very pleased with the results. A huge thank you to all the parents who took the runners to the races. It was really great to have so many pupils competing."
