National Athletics Success – Pupils race to glory

Downside pupils took part in the Senior National Cross-Country Championships, last weekend.

The Senior Boys’ Somerset Team, which included Felix Rusby, Theo Mathew, and Harry Travers, came 3rd out of 48 teams; a huge achievement, especially given the smaller population of Somerset in comparison to other counties! Lucy Baldwin also performed particularly well, she was the first of the Somerset girls to finish the Senior Girls race.
