Success in District Cross Country
Over 300 competitors from twelve local schools competed in the District Cross Country Competition, hosted by the Stamford Endowed Schools in Burghley Park. From the 8 races the home competitors enjoyed considerable success, with wins for Jess Walker in the senior girls race, Chris Allison in the senior boys race and Kieran Calnan in the Y7 boys race. Also impressive were Natalia Sanz-Dawson and Ismay Fox (2nd & 3rd in the senior girls race), Megan Ellison (2nd in the junior girls race) together with Connor Butterworth and Edward Wurr (3rd and 4th in the Y7 boys race). In the team competition, Stamford High School won both the intermediate and senior girls races. With the first 12 in each race qualifying for the county championships, around 20 SES students will be heading to Caythorpe to represent the Kesteven District in January.
