Double win for cross country Juniors

It was double celebrations for the Junior School Cross Country running teams when both the girls and boys teams won the West Area Sports Association cross country league.

6 CHS athletes also received individual medals for their consistently high-placed finishes over the season – congratulations Lottie Bischof, Thea Uprichard, Finn Pimlott, Gabriel Galassi, Woody Lees and Max Morgan.

This is the fifth year in succession the boys have won but the first for many years that both girls and boys have brought winning medals back to CHS.

The races took place at four of the five participating schools (CHS, Cheadle Catholic JS, Lane End PS, Greenbank and Hursthead).

Junior School Sports Coach, Mr David Jackson was thrilled with the athletes’ performance. He said: “This is an excellent result! We are going for the double again next year, I know they can do it!”

The after school Junior Cross Country Club is very well attended and all pupils are offered the opportunity to compete in CHS’s home fixtures.
