On Tuesday 15th January twenty nine 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 22nd January being held at Langley High School. 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 heavy going. A stunning performance from Ed (Year 8) in the Under 15 boys race saw him beat mainly Year 9’s to win the race, guaranteeing his place at the Norfolk Schools finals. A number of great performances meant that he will be accompanied by further qualifications from;
Year 7 age group – Logan (6th), Charlie (9th – Res)
Year 8/9 age group – Barney (7th), Callum (8th), Roger (10th – Res), Holly (4th), Ellie (7th)
Year 10/11 age group – Raf (7th), Oliver (10th – Res)
Well done to all who took part and good luck to those competing in the Norfolk Schools Championships later in the month.
