Cross country news now as the season is drawing to a close and news of the Abberley Hall Relays in deepest Worcestershire with an Under 11 and an Under 13 team all committing well to their task on a muddy winter’s day with the Under 11s finishing 7th out of 18 teams.

Secondly came the Welsh Schools Championships run over a challenging, hilly course in Brecon. Monmouth school was very proud to boast 7 boys running for South East Wales: Josh and Lewis in the year 7’s race, Rowan in the year 8/9’s race, Robbie in the year 10/11’s race and Josh, Billy and Jack in the seniors.  The best performance of the day from a Monmouth student came from Robbie, who was 31st out of a total field of 90 making him the 3rd highest South East Wales runner in his race.

Well done to all involved in both these races and throughout an incredibly successful cross-country season.
