On Tuesday 31 pupils from Northgate competed in the Mid Norfolk Area Cross Country championships held at Neatherd Moor.  Pupils were racing to qualify for a place on the Mid Norfolk team for the Norfolk Schools Championships on 23rd January being held at Sloughbottom Park in Norwich. The event hosted runners not only from Northgate but also from other high schools including Neatherd,  Litcham, Sacred Heart and Iceni Academy.  Running conditions were tough as the recent poor weather made the course very boggy and heavy going.  However, strong performances from Ed Bunting (Year 7), Luke Bean (Year 9) and Erin McNulty (Year 10) saw them win their respective events and guarantee their place at the Norfolk Schools finals. Further great performances meant that they will be accompanied by qualifications from;

Year 7 age group – Ella Louis Hunt (4th), Lacey Clements (8th)

Year 8/9 age group – Diogo Monsanto (3rd), Ruby Dagless (5th) & Holly Williams (7th)

Year 10/11 age group – Callum Stedman (2nd), Marcello Ramos (3rd), Aiden Sturman (5th) and Lucy Winter (7th)

Well done to all who took part
