Anglian Inter County – February 2024

9 Feb 24

Saturday 3 February, saw 22 of our students represent Suffolk at the annual Anglian Inter County Schools Cross Country Championship in Lincolnshire. Teams are selected by Suffolk Schools and include 16 athletes in each, covering four age groups from Year 6 through to 13.

It was a fantastic day and our students made a major contribution to the Suffolk Schools team, dominant on the day as they competed against young athletes from across the regions.

Taking four of the eight team victories, alongside two seconds and two thirds, Suffolk athletes won eight of the 24 individual medals and three of those were won by Woodbridge School athletes, meaning Suffolk were crowned Anglian Schools Champions, defending the title they also won last year.

Huge congratulations to everyone who took part, particularly Year 7’s Dexter who took Gold in Minor Boys, Year 7’s India J who took Bronze in Minor Girls, and to Year 13’s Henry who came away with Gold in the Senior Boys.

We’re now almost the end of a long season of Cross Country, with just the major nationals to race in March.

3rd place – Year 7’s India J (India was 2nd Suffolk finisher)

For most of our Minor athletes (Year 6 and 7) this will mark the end of a busy yet very successful Cross Country season, although a few will still compete at UK Inter Counties in Nottingham on 9 March.

For Junior and older, Suffolk Schools will now select a reduced team to compete at the English Schools Championship in Pontefract on Saturday 16 March. We are hopeful that there are still between five and seven Woodbridge School athletes in contention.

A fantastic day, congratulations to every athlete and thank you to all the parents who travelled to Lincolnshire in support!
