|On Thursday 11 January, Woodbridge School hosted the Suffolk Schools’ Series B County Championships, which was also the final trial for the Anglian Schools’ race in February and the English Schools’ event in March. The weather may not have been at its best, but the athletes weren’t to be deterred despite a muddy course and difficult footing from trying their best.
Twenty five runners from The Abbey and Senior School raced, having already gained top 40 places at the Series A championships at Culford in December and there were some outstanding results. In particular, six won medals for top-three finishes and are hoping to be selected to represent Suffolk.
Minor Girls – Ruby Vinton 1st
Minor Boys – Ed Buckingham 8th, Moses McBride 9th, Henry Vincent 20th, Tommy Burrows 34th, John Evans Lombe 39th, Jonjo Walker 44th & George Na Nakhorn 49th
Junior Girls – April Hill 1st, Amy Goddard 5th, Bea Thomas 9th, Jess Elmer 10th, Anna Jackson 19th, Emily Whyte 20th and Ashleigh Wildbore 37th.

Thank you to all the members of staff and parents who volunteered and supported the event, whether marshalling, warming up, or supervising the athletes. We would not be able to host such events without all your support. Also, many thanks again to Mr Goddard for his dedication and for the time he gives.
