County Cross Country Championships were held at Radley on Tuesday 2nd February
in sunny but extremely tough, blustery conditions, the course very heavy
and wet underfoot. Henry Insley (above left), captaining our committed Junior team, had
been narrowly beaten in the Area Championships just a few days before
and was clearly determined to turn the tables on his rival. In a
competition against all the schools in the County, state and independent, he
established his front position early on and with typical competitiveness and
stamina pulled away to win convincingly.
He becomes Radley's first
Junior County Cross Country Champion for several years. Henry has now
been invited to join the Oxfordshire County Cross Country Team for the All
England Schools Championships on March 5th in Nottingham.
