Woodbridge School earns place in ESAA Cross Country Nationals 2016

1 Dec 16

Young athletes from Woodbridge School have earned a place in the national final of the England Schools Athletics Association (ESAA) Cross Country Cup. 24 pupils from Woodbridge School, aged 12 to 16, gave an impressive performance at the regional finals event on November 12, where they were one of two teams representing Suffolk against school teams from seven other counties.


Four teams from Woodbridge School took part in the regional event; Junior Girls (under 14) who came third place overall, Junior Boys (under 14) who came second overall, Inter Girls (under 16) who came third overall after some strong individual performances, and Inter Boys (under 16) who came fifth overall. Woodbridge School will be competing in three of the four cross country races – Junior Boys, Junior Girls and Inter Girls – at the ESAA Cross Country Cup national final on December 3 in Formby, Lancashire.


Out of 4,000 secondary schools in England, Woodbridge School were one of only 25 to qualify for the national finals and one of only three schools to qualify with more than two teams. This is the first time that a team of Woodbridge School cross country pupils will be competing at a national level.
