Northampton School for Boys


ESAA Cross Country Championships 2017

ESAA Cross Country March 2017 01 thbs

On Saturday 18th March 2017 six NSB students represented Northamptonshire in the English School Athletics Association Cross Country Championships. This is one of the most prestigious events in the school sports calendar and is a great honour to be selected.

Essentially there were four seasons in one day for the athletes to deal with as well as the flat, fast course at the Norfolk showground! Spring showers, bright sunshine, changeable temperatures and strong icy winds were all in evidence.

All of our students found the conditions very hard going, as you would expect, but dealt with them extremely well and finished in the following positions:

Junior Boys (Y8 & Y9)

Fergus Scott 64th
Noah Bennett 87th
Angus Threlfall 131st

Intermediate Boys (Y10 & Y11)

All of our boys are Year 10 so have another year to develop:

Adam Caulfield 42nd
Jack Gray 195th
Trystan Barnett 298th

 It is a very strong set of results, brought about by hard graft, emotional strength and a great deal of talent. A great end to another fantastic cross country season.
