Cross Country success for LudgroveLinks in this section
Ludgrove's Cross Country runners have had a very successful half of the term doing well in both local and national races.
On 23rd February, Ludgrove hosted the Inter-School Cross Country Relay event with teams from Caldicott, Elstree, Hall Grove, Papplewick, Sunningdale and Summer Fields taking part. Although the weather was cold, the spectators were treated to some scorching races (and warmed up with hot chocolate!). The runners all showed incredible team spirit, with special mention to U9s who came 1st, and the Junior and Senior 'A' teams who both placed 2nd.
The U11 and U10 runners stormed round the Cross Country track at The Oratory School on 2nd March to lift the team trophies for each age group. Competing against runners from eight other schools, we are incredibly proud of our boys’ team performances.
Congratulations to the eight Ludgrove boys who competed against hundreds of runners in the National Prep School Cross Country Championships at Malvern College on 5th March. The Juniors (Arlo, Arthur, Freddie and Merlin) came 19th and the Seniors (Archie, Ludo, Tintin and Will) came 16th with outstanding performances by captains Arlo and Tintin. Well done boys, you did yourselves and your School proud.
