    Town Sports Cross-Country


    On the 14th of November, 60 students from year groups 7 to 11 competed in the annual Town Sports Cross-Country, the top 16 runners advancing to the next County Round. Highlights include Olivia Dent having an excellent run for the Year 7 girls placing 4th and Alana Harris close behind placing 5th. Jess Whitaker having tough competition, excelled well and managed to finish 5th within her 8 and 9 year group and Ciaran Dixon having a brilliant race for the intermediate boys finishing 7th. These runners being only a few out of the many students advancing to the next round. Henry King and Adam Harker, although these students didn’t place below 16th, they showed great commitment and determination in an amazing photo sprint finish between themselves, well done to the both of them.  A special mention goes to Izaak Taylor who didn’t compete but has an automatic pass into the next round and Caitlin Minns who competed for the intermediate girls and had an outstanding run, finishing 1st by a comfortable distance. All students tried their hardest, running really well and competing to their best abilities, doing us proud against all Darlington Schools. Well done to everyone.
