1st and 2nd in Cross Country Championship
Sunday, 01 March 2009
On a real cross country evening of wind, rain and lots of mud, the two Bolton School Junior Boys' teams performed admirably, winning the Year 5/Year 6 race and coming second in the Year 3/Year 4 race in the Bolton Primary Schools' Cross Country Championship.
In the Y5/Y6 race there were top ten finishes for Edward Joyce (3rd) and David Price (6th), out of a field of 120 runners; in the Y3/Y4 race, Sam Croston finished 6th, Nick Round finished 7th and Harrison Barker-Smith came in 10th, out of a field of 84 runners.
The boys had also won the Bolton Primary Schools' Cross Country League earlier in the academic year.
Edward Joyce, David Price and Elliot Makin (11th in the Y5/Y6 race) have been invited to represent Bolton at the Greater Manchester Championships on Saturday 14 March.
