Furze Platt wins Berkshire Schools' U17 XC Team Championships
The winning team, consisting of Adam Gambrill, Sammy March, Ben Reynolds and Toby Ralphs (pictured), beat runners from across the region to claim the hotly contested title.
The championships, which took place on Saturday 20th January at Newbury Showground, featured students from both independent and comprehensive schools battling for victory in cold, wet weather. In addition to our victorious U17 team, our U15 team did well to come sixth, with Edwin Isted, Iwan Hughes, Josh Dilley, Sid Baker-Smith, Jack Staunton and Frank McGrath finishing strongly. Frank was 6th in the U15 boys race.
The U13 team consisted of Callum Bleazard, Harry Holbrook, George Stratford, Charlie Shervell and Tim Golding, and Ava Neeves and Kensa Horner competed in the U15 Girls' event, with Sophia Blake in the U13 race.
Adam, Sammy and Frank have qualified to represent Berkshire Schools at the SE Schools Inter-Counties Champs in February.
Well done to them all.
