Wins for Woodbridge at Cross Country

11 Jan 22

Last weekend was incredibly busy for our cross country athletes, starting with Henry (Y11) racing his way to win the Essex U17 Cross Country title.  In doing so, he secured his selection to compete at the UK Inter County Cross Country in Loughborough on Saturday 12 March as well as a place on the East of England team to compete in the London Mini Marathon in October.  

Not to be outdone, Ruby (Y11) also did amazing well, achieving exactly the same by becoming Suffolk U17 Champion at the Suffolk County race last Sunday.  Considering both students are in Year 11 and competing in a Year 11 and 12 race, they can both be extremely proud of themselves and their achievements.    

Year 6’s Alice took gold in the U11 girls race at the same event, and as this was then combined with the U11 boys race, she became the overall winner, which was also a superb achievement – and really something special to watch.  Marina (Y6) also achieved a top 10 place, finishing 7th overall.  

Perhaps the biggest surprise of the day came in the U13 girls race where Felicity (Y7) ran a great race to take bronze in 3rd place; closely followed by Charlie (Y8) in 4th place, both girls are now guaranteed selection for the UK Inter Counties taking place in March.  Two others who might still be considered for selection were Aurelia (Y8) and Romilly (Y7) who came in 8th and 9th place respectively.   Four in the top 10 meant a clear win for Woodbridge in the team competition at a club event, truly something to be extremely proud of as overall the U13 girls team took gold, beating all other running clubs in Suffolk!  

Competing a year up in the boys U13 race, Year 6’s Digby continued his excellent winter, finishing 12th.  

It really was a very good couple of days for Woodbridge School athletes, with their next race now being the Suffolk Schools Trial which is being hosted at the School on Thursday 13 January.
