Gresham’s had a very successful morning at Langley School. Pupils from the prep and senior school took part in the cross-country championship hoping to qualify for the next round of the competition.
Ben W in Year 9 raced first over 4.7km and stay in the leading pack during the first lap. He dropped back slightly after a confusion over the course but was able to hold on to finish 9th.
Poppy and Charlotte G along with Evie H took part in the Intermediate competition. They had a great race in a very competitive field. After completing the 3.9km course Charlotte finished 2nd, Evie 5th and Poppy 7th.
In the senior girls race Hattie R lead from start to finish racing over 3.9km hardly losing any time when she needed to adjust her shoe.
