St Columba’s College won the south east School Cross Country Champions, held at Harrow School, last weekend.
On an extremely challenging, muddy course, St Columba’s won the competition by over 40 points.
Josh Edwards, who came fifth, and Henry Fulton opted against potential individual glory in the junior race to compete in the intermediate event and help St Columba’s to victory.
National champion George Groom led from the front and, with outstanding runs from captain Charlie Griffiths, Tom Dee, George Loveman, James Bromfield and Kit Shepard, St Columba’s earned 98 points.
The result rounded off an excellent two days for the college after its U13 retained the St Martins Cup for the fifth consecutive year.
