On: Saturday, 10 Nov 2018
Venue: Away

A fantastic result for the year 7 and 8 cross country runners on Saturday to come 2nd in the English Schools Cup South West round and therefore reach a place in the national finals. The race was held amid challenging weather conditions on an excellent course at Downside School in Somerset, and the team were 2nd out of 12 schools just behind The Park School from Devon, but ahead of Millfield and Poole Grammar School.

The team's commitment was excellent with Oscar Falkentoft finishing in 4th, Sam Lindsey-Halls in 10th, Oji Adoh in 22nd, Tom Ellington in 23rd, and Nicholas Haldane in 25th. The team now go on to compete on Saturday 24th November at Woodbridge School in Suffolk against the top 23 schools in the country. With the year 9/10 team also qualifying for these finals, it promises to be a great day for Blue Coat Cross Country. Very well done to all those who competed.
