BGLC have retained the Hinckley and Bosworth Schools Cross Country title after winning the inaugural competition last year. It is awarded to the school with the most students running in each of the Leicestershire Schools Cross Country League races. We share the trophy with Market Bosworth High School this year. Well done to all our students that have represented the campus in cross-country this year, particularly as the conditions have been very challenging.
Pictured below, with the winning trophy, are some of the students
who took part and represented BGLC.
The Year 7 boys team were crowned Leicestershire School Cross-Country Champions for their age group. Louie Paddison, Riley Smith and Evan Wrightam ran in all the races, but they were joined by Macauley McGlinchey, Archie Darker and Harry Thurlow in the earlier races. An excellent result for the boys in their first season running for the Brookvale Groby Campus. The Junior Boys team finished third in their respective league with Philip Chick, Joe Matthews, George McMorran and Arthur Wrightam our regular runners at this age group. Another excellent result!
