A Co-educational Independent School in Suffolk for ages 4 to 18

SUFFOLK SCHOOLS CROSS COUNTRY TRIAL

On Saturday 1 December, over thirty Woodbridge School athletes competed at Ipswich High in the second Suffolk Schools Cross Country trial, having qualified through the first trial in October.  And they produced an outstanding set of results despite the constant rain. In summary:

Four individual medals: golds to Amy and April, silver to Nathan and bronze to George.

12 top 8 positions (the Suffolk Team comprises 8 in each age group to compete at England Schools in March).

15 top 16 positions (a wider Suffolk Team is selected to compete at Anglian Schools in February).

24 athletes qualify by right to compete in the final Suffolk trial to be hosted by Woodbridge School on 10 January (Top 40 finish).

These numbers exclude two of our superstars who were ill or injured and who, together with a few other runners close to qualifying, will be granted byes to the final trial.

Congratulations to every athlete that represented Woodbridge School so well in difficult conditions. The results are just rewards for all the hard work you are putting in and everyone should be extremely proud of their performance.
