Cross Country Champions

Great success in the BPS Cross Country Finals

The final race of the series was held earlier this week. The level of commitment from each and every runner was amazing. They gave it their all to finish in the best possible place, trying to overtake runners and not letting others past.

The girls’ team had entered the final race way ahead of their closest rivals which meant that their final stunning performance secured their victory, and resulted in them taking away the girls’ cup.

A special mention must go to Lois McTiffin who won the girls’ overall gold medal and Eloise Littlefair who came away with silver.

Equally as determined to win were the boys. After they all finished in the top 50 places in the second series, the pressure was on and they didn’t disappoint! This time, they all finished in the top 35, with Dominc Naylor taking the gold medal overall in the boys’ race. They finished in second place as a team – their best result yet!

With the amazing performances from both teams, Westholme were crowned champions in the combined event for the second year running.

Well done to the whole team on such a fantastic achievement!
