Competing at Campion School against a strong field of runners from Essex, they saw Matthew Blacklock finish second in the inter boys’ race as Daniel Houchell came home in sixth.

The junior girls’ team of Sophie Wilson, Anelia King, Abigail Swan and Isobel Calabritto ran exceptionally well to progress with Coopers to the next round in Ipswich on November 10.

Head of girls’ PE Lynne Swan said: “I am very proud of all our runners.

“The junior girls’ team stuck together brilliantly, coming in eighth, ninth, 11th and 14th and their team total was 24 points clear of the third-placed team.
