CCB hosted the final event of the annual South Powys schools cross country series on Thursday 8th November and together the team put in some strong performances.
Notable finishers were Beth Wood who came 2nd in the Senior Girls race and Patrick Howells who came 3rd in Senior Boys. Megan Reynolds finished a respectable 5th for the Junior Girls, who were also awarded the silver medal for the team event across all four races.
The winning team were Sophie Williams, Olivia O’Brien, Hannah O’Brien and Megan Reynolds. Pictured are the Alway girls team.
Missing from the School team was Louisa Hassel who had received international call-up for Germany. Louisa was invited to the Fair Play Camp in Saarbruken (in Germany) and following a week of tests and assessments and workshops Louisa was selected to join the German National Junior squad.
On Saturday November 17th we sent a team to WSAA Inter Schools Cross Country (inc Welsh Colleges Championships) – Penlan Arena, Brecon. Saturday 17th November.
