Avon Cross Country Championships
Chew Valley School was well represented on a very cold Saturday morning at Blaise Castle on 12th January. The eight students braved the extreme conditions of mud and icy wind to perform very well in their races, even managing to finish with both shoes still on. Charlie McDonald came 4th in the Inter Boys race and Nick Matthews was placed 6th in the Senior Boys race. Ben Harding and Max James helped the BANES team to gain 2nd place in the Minor Boys event, finishing 13th and 18th respectively. In the girls’ races Heather LaPorte was a member of the winning BANES Minor Girls team and Issy Twiggs was placed 19th in the Junior Girls event. Becky Fenn and Vicky Vipond finished in very respectable positions in the Inter Girls event. Well done to all the students for fantastic performances and good luck to Charlie and Nick in the selection procedure for the Avon team for the SW Championships.
