Girls Run for Bolton at GM Cross Country Championships

Tuesday, 07 February 2017

  • GM Cross Country Championships Girls

Four Girls’ Division pupils were recently chosen to run for the Bolton Town Cross Country team at the Greater Manchester Schools’ Cross Country Championships.

Year 7 pupil Anna Wiggetts and Year 8s Maya Croasdaile, Phoebe Hurt and Lucy Pixton gave excellent individual performances at the Bolton Schools’ Cross Country Championships in October and were subsequently invited to join the Bolton Town team. They went on to compete at the Greater Manchester Schools’ Cross Country Championships at Heaton Park in early February.

Anna Wiggetts finished in a very commendable 42nd place in the Minors (Year 7) race. In the Junior (Y8) race, Lucy Pixton was placed 52nd and Maya Croasdaile finished just behind her in 53rd place. Unfortunately Phoebe Hurt sustained an injury to her ankle while running the very muddy Heaton Park course, and was unable to complete the race.
