Suffolk Schools Cross Country Trial 2022 – Minors and Medals

1 Dec 22

There’s plenty of news for Cross Country this week, with the second Suffolk Schools Cross Country trial having taken place, as well as confirmation of students being selected  to represent Suffolk at the South of England Inter County Cross Country. 

Suffolk School’s Cross Country trial 

Last Saturday students set off to Ipswich High School to compete in the second Suffolk Schools Cross Country trial, where there were unprecedented results, achievements and medals. 

Following the first trial in October just the top 100 athletes in each age group, from around 80 schools, were invited to compete at this trial. 

The talk of the day had to be our Minor Girls team (Years 6 and 7) where Woodbridge School athletes had seven of the top 14 places, something that’s absolutely unprecedented!  To give this performance some context, 16 athletes will represent Suffolk Schools at Anglian Schools in February, so we have potential as a single school to fill almost half the county team. 

We should also celebrate our individual medalists on the day, it’s never easy at this level: 

Minor Girls – Alice (Year 7) – Gold 
Senior Girls – Amy (Year 13) – Gold 
Inter Girls – Phoebe (Year 10) – Bronze 

With just one trial remaining, which Woodbridge School will host on Thursday 12 January (parents very welcome to spectate, our first race starts at 11.00am), we still have around 20 athletes in contention for Suffolk Schools selection (across the age groups) to compete at Anglian Schools in February, with just under half (and age groups Junior and above) still in contention to compete at English Schools in Nottingham in March. 

Below we have the full list of athletes in the top 20 on Saturday: 

Minor Girls: 
1 – Alice (Year 7) 
5 – Grace (Year 7) 
6 – India J (Year 6) 
7 – Marina (Year 7) 
10 – Ella (Year 6) 
11 – India B (Year 6) 
14 – Alexandra (Year 6) 

Minor Boys: 
9 – Digby (Year 7) 

Junior Girls: 
6 – Charlie (Year 9) 
9 – Felicity (Year 8) 

Inter Girls: 
3 – Phoebe (Year 10) 
8 – Ellen (Year 11)

16 – Poppy (Year 10) 

Inter Boys: 

5 – Angus (Year 10) 
17 – Bruce (Year 11) 

Senior Girls: 
1 – Amy (Year 13) 
4 – Isobel (Year 12) 

Huge well done to Year 7’s Amelie, Charlotte, Eirann, Oscar and Jacob, to Year 8’s Sophie, Year 9’s Eloise and to Year 10’s Georgia, Lyra and Lilianna and Year 11’s Oscar,  who competed on the day, not achieving a top 20 place, but doing incredibly well.  

Congratulations to every athlete that took part, and thank you to staff and parents for their support on the day!
