Woodbridge pupils dominate in cross country field

A Suffolk school scooped nine of the 11 titles up for grabs at a regional cross country contest.

It was the first time Woodbridge School had hosted the East Anglian Prep Schools Cross Country Championships, with more than 360 pupils aged 10-13 taking part from 19 schools.

Woodbridge girls won the under-11, 12 and 13 team categories as well as the overall girls’ title.

Not be outdone, the boys won the under-10, 11 and 13 age groups, as well as the overall boys’ title, which meant Woodbridge School scooped the overall championship.

The only titles not won by Woodbridge were the girls’ under-10 and boys’ under-12 titles, which went to Kimbolton School in Huntingdon and Town Close House School in Norwich. Adam Lubbock, the school’s head of sport, said the support of staff and parents made hosting the event even more special.
