Cross Country

In the Midlands and Northern Independent Schools Cross Country (MANISCC) at Oundle School in the Colts race (third to fifth form boys) one of our pupils ran really well against older boys and was 16th out of 51.

The girls' team also did well against some serious opposition to finish fifth team out of 15 against big schools like Sedbergh School, Uppingham School, Oundle School and Bromsgrove School. Best performances were Sophia Malpass 14th, Mackenzie Penn 17th, Lizzie Benbow 23rd and Gina Rowlinson (pictured above) 27th. All the runners did well and deserve to be congratulated
