Harrow School was the illustrious venue for the South East Schools’ Cross-Country Championships and Coopers Coborn were certainly not out of place at the 20th anniversary of the event.

Coopers put in their best performance so far with all the boys gaining a medal up against some stiff opposition from the likes of Dover College, Brighton College, Sedburgh, Abingdon and St Paul’s School.

The intermediate boys were all in fine form over a tricky course with Tom Keevil battling to victory in style and Harry Jones finishing as runner-up.

Sam Atkins was seventh with Dan McGill 15th, George Hill in 21st and the team being completed by Jacob Smith in 35th as they finished second overall.

The Junior Boys’ team also finished in second place as Alex Ford led the way with a battling fifth place.

Josh McGill was not far behind in 13th, with Dominic Jarvis 21st, Ben Naish two places behind him, Matthew Hick in 33rd, Jake Long 49th and Sam Bradley completing the team.

There was also a fine run by Ben Davis in the senior boys’ race as he battled home in a superb third place.
