House Cross Country 2014
After a couple of aborted attempts due to bad weather it was a relief to see the sun shining as the boys made their way over to the House Cross Country Competition.
The Prep I race produced a thrilling finish with Oliver just thwarting a late challenge by Lysander.
In Prep II, Adam took the lead early on and proved too strong for the chasing pack.
Joshua produced a text book race in Prep III. He stalked long-time leader Sam for most of the 2nd lap and then struck on the back straight to pull away.
The Prep IV race was dominated by Rowan who displayed his obvious talent as he led from start to finish.
Nelson secured the overall title.
