English Schools’ Cross Country Cup

Junior Girls’ Team in the Regional Final

The Westholme Junior Girls’ team finished in 9th place in the north west Regional Final of the English Schools Cross Country Cup at Tarleton with superb performances from all of the girls. Lucy Fielden (Year 8) had a strong start and was the first Westholme runner home, in 21st position, out of a very large field of 64 runners entered in this event. Laura Backhouse (Year 7) finished in a superb 30th place while Baylie Thompson (Year 8) made up a lot of ground on the second lap of this extremely muddy course to finish as the 3rd Westholme runner home, closely followed by Natasha Rogan in Year 7. The team was completed by Charlotte Berry (Year 8) and Claudia Rayner (Year 8) who both put in strong performances. Although the Junior Team has not qualified for the National Final they should feel extremely proud of their performance in the race on Saturday.
