Cross Country Champion!

Westholme School compete in Lancashire Schools Cross Country Championships

On Saturday 1st February, students from Westholme were selected to represent Blackburn with Darwen in the Lancashire schools cross country championships at Witton Park.

The course was muddy and the weather cold and damp!

Well done to Lucy Fielden who finished in 12th place, and Claudia Reyner who ran in the intermediate girl’s race and finished without a shoe after losing it in the mud!
