Upminster pupils dominate borough event
Coopers Coborn celebrated plenty of success at the Havering Cross-Country Championships at Stubbers before the half-term break.
Coopers fielded more pupils than any of their borough rivals, showing their strength in depth and the popularity of the sport at the school.
And they claimed wins in both of the year seven, year eight, year nine and year 12/13 races, while also winning the year 10/11 girls’ race.
The year 10/11 boys’ team finished second, denying Coopers a clean sweep, but their nine B teams all took top honours, while also claiming a pair of second places and two third places in the overall standings.
Assistant headteacher Mark Duncan said: “It was a very dominant performance indeed. Many students have also now been selected for the Havering team to run at Parliament Hill in the London Youth Games as well as the Essex Schools’ Championships at Colchester (January).”
