Runners Race Their Way into Cross Country District Team

Three runners braved freezing conditions to secure their place on the district cross country team.

Hannah Winstone (Year 8), Gabe Smith (Year 8) and Kelsey Walsh (Year 7, pictured) competed at Abington Park last Saturday.

PE teacher Michael Oldershaw said: "They all put in fantastic performances in difficult conditions. A special mention needs to go to for Gabe Smith as he finished 12th and was therefore selected for the County Cross Country Team. 

"This is even more impressive as he was running against Year 9 students."

Late last year, Gabe, who is a member of Kettering Town Harriers, broke the seven year club record for the under-13s high jump, with a jump of 1.52m. It put him in 11th position in the UK and second in the county.
