In a stunning set of team performances at the Championships, the School became the ﬁrst ever to take all eight cross-country team titles and an amazing 59 students automatically qualiﬁed to represent the School (and South Lincolnshire) at the County Championships on 10 January. Additionally, of the 8 races, six Bourne Grammar students won their respective races. It was indeed an outstanding morning, full of superb individual and team performances. The race, starting at the Gleed School in Spalding, made its way to the River Welland on the south-east side of the town before crossing the river and running back on the opposite bank. Crossing the river once again, students then returned to the ﬁnish to complete either the 2.6km, 3.6km or 6.4km course, dependent on their age. Each team had their own special moments, although it is worth recognising the excellent performance of those who won their races as well as the Year 8 & 9 girls’ team which simply dominated the race with 12 of the top 15 being from our School. A special mention also to Lauren Brown (Year 11) who stepped in at short notice (for a cup-cake!) to complete the Year 10 & 11 girls’ team and also to Beth Howells (Year 12) who managed to ﬁeld a complete team of Senior Girls for the ﬁrst time and thereby made it possible for the School to claim all eight titles.
