Twenty one of Westholme’s finest runners compete
Twenty one of Westholme’s finest runners took to the hills of Cockermouth in the Lake District to compete in the English Schools’ Fell Running Championships. The conditions were extremely bad, with high winds and torrential rain. Westholme entered a year 7 girls’ team, a Year 7 boys’ team, a combined Year 8/9 team, a combined Year 9 team and a Sixth Form team.
Westholme’s Year 7 girls finished in overall 2nd place, with Laura Backhouse finishing in 9th position. Well done to our first ever Year 7 boys’ team who finished in 5th place.
The Year 8 and 9 team finished in a fantastic 2nd place and the senior team, consisting of Katie Buckley, Beth Walker-Smith and Ella Daniels won the overall Year 12/13 team race, with Katie finishing in 1st place.
Overall, Westholme were 4th in the competition with only three points separating second, third and fourth place.
