Cross country success for Year 7 boysPosted on: 22nd Jan
Year 7 boys had an incredible cross country event last weekend. Held at Newbury Showground over a two-mile mostly flat course, The Downs School emerged victorious beating all the other Berkshire schools in the tournament.
Fielding three teams, they finished 1st, 7th and 12th on a wet and cold day, in very muddy conditions. Congratulations to Tom who finished 5th overall in the race, Ivan who was 10th and John who was 31st. Congratulations to them and all those involved.
Our Year 8 boys also put in an impressive performance to finished 3rd team overall in the Y8/9 boys competition. Our Year 8 girls team finished 6th in the Y8/9 event.
This is a really impressive result for the school at county level and we now head to the District competition on 23 January where we are hoping for further success.
