Following the success at Crowland in the first round of the competition, all four of the Bourne Grammar School teams progressed to the ESAA Cross Country Cup reginal finals.
This is the first time in a number of years that boys and girls junior (Year 7 & 8) and the inter (Years 9&10) teams have all reached this stage of the competition and arguably produced Bourne’s best-ever performances.
Greeted by hills, wind and rain, the weather was ideal for cross country with the wet and muddy course adding to the experience for the athletes.
The effort, attitude and commitment during the races was exceptional from all students, and with the top four athletes from each team scoring, it would prove to be a team effort.
The junior girls finished in third place and the inter girls team managed to claim second position.
That means for the seventh time in eight years, Bourne Grammar will be represented in the national final in Bedford on December 5.
The inter boys team took fourth place, just missing out to progress to the final.
The junior boys also claimed fourth, missing out by a slightly greater margin.
