There was Christ College success at this weekend’s Welsh Schools Cross-Country Championships held in Brecon on 1st February.
Christ College’s Issy Morris earned selection for the Welsh Cross-Country Team as she battled to an outstanding 6th place in her race. She will now go on to represent Wales in the forthcoming Home International championships. Her selection comes a few weeks after she won the 3000m in the Welsh Indoor Athletics Championships in Cardiff.
Form 3 pupil Jack Stephens battled through the atrocious conditions to come a courageous 11th place in his race which has resulted in Jack being selected as first reserve for the Welsh team.
Jack’s younger brother, Kitt, came in a creditable 23rd place in his race but Willow Ransome, despite showing some strong form early on, pulled up during her race. Kate Jenkins was unable to join her Christ College team mates at the Welsh Championships as she was competing in another event in the pool.
All five earned their County selection with strong performances in the qualifier held in Newtown last month.
Christ College’s Director of Sport, said: “It’s been a great few weeks for Christ College athletes. I’m delighted with these pupils’ performances and they did exceptionally well just to be on the starting line!”
Head of Christ College, Emma Taylor, added: “The future of athletics, and cross-country in particular, appears to be in very safe hands. These young athletes not only battled it out with the best athletes in Wales, but they also had to contend with a tough course and atrocious weather!”
