The West Bridgford School

A Specialist Technology Academy

Solid start to cross country season

On Saturday October 13th West Bridgford competed in the Nottinghamshire Schools Cross Country League race one in Sutton-In-Ashfield.  The league races invite all athletes from all over the County to compete, making the races very competitive and closely fought.  On a lovely autumnal morning, and over a challenging course, Bridgford fielded over 30 athletes in 4 races and competed over distances from 2.5km to 4km.  There were some excellent team and individual performances and the morning started well with Joseph Mitchell (15th) leading the Year 7 boys team to 6th place.  The 8/9 Boys team, not wanting to be outdone, finished a highly credible 3rd with bottom age Luis Kelk in 9th first Bridgford runner home.  However, it was the girls' team display that really topped off the morning with the Year 7 girls fielding 2 complete teams who finished in 1st and 4th and the Year 8/9 teams finishing in 2nd and 6th which was a fantastic achievement.  With 3 of the 4 age group teams finishing in the top three the signs are encouraging that, once again, we can win medals in the team competition after the 3 league races.  Well done to all who competed. 
The 2nd league race is on Saturday 17th November at Sutton Lawns.
