Suffolk Schools Cross Country Trial Sees Woodbridge Triumph

15 Jan 19

On Thursday 10 January Woodbridge School played host to the third and final Suffolk Schools Cross Country trial.

Trials commenced in October, with almost 1800 athletes from 62 schools competing for a position in the team to represent Suffolk at the Anglian Schools in February and perhaps even England Schools in March.  No fewer than 34 Woodbridge School athletes were amongst the 320 qualifying for this, the final trial, in our own grounds.

The exciting day comprised eight races across the age groups, with our own athletes winning six of the 24 individual medals awarded to top three finishers.

Based on finishing positions across the series we are hopeful that as many as 16 Woodbridge School athletes will represent Suffolk at the Anglian Schools in Northampton in February, and hopefully as many as 10 could make the final 48 to represent the County at England Schools in Leeds in March. For Woodbridge School to provide over 20% of the team would be a new milestone.

Congratulations to every athlete who competed through each trial; and a huge thank you to all parents, staff and athletes who helped deliver such a successful home event.
