East Northumberland Schools X-C

[Tue 6th Dec] 


East Northumberland Schools recently held their annual Cross Country trials at Woodhorn Colliery, the first 16 in each race would then represent East North at the County Championships in January.

Several members of Blyth were running and in the Minor Girls race Lauren Robson and Alice Gittens easily qualified as they finished 4th and 6th respectively. In the Juniors boys race, Lewis Jansen ran a steady race to qualify in 10th position with Harry McCabe also qualifying in 15th. In the Junior girls race, Charlie Hedley controlled the race and easily qualified by winning with Lois Kankowski finishing in third place, while Erin Scott struggled as she was competing against girls a year older then her and will benefit from the experience.  In the Inter boys race, Mattie Jackson just ran his usual race to finish in fourth place, just in front of Michael Scott , who finished just in front of Joseph Woods with Chris Sheffer one place back. We think Mark Nicholson also qualified but is not in the official results.  For the Inter Girls, Charlotte was quite happy just to jog around and finish in second position.
