Cross Country

West Oxfordshire Cross Country

The Batt School’s four cross country teams, comprising of upper and lower junior boys and girls, headed off to Witney rugby club on a grey and murky Thursday afternoon.

Once through all the traffic it was evident that many teams had entered the competition and with each of the four races having over 150 entrants in, The Batt knew there would be stiff competition.

With the lower juniors running 1,500 metres and the uppers running a 200 metre course, there were many notable performances, particularly Louis who made the top 20, and Martha S who won her race ahead of 165 other competitors just as the rain came down in buckets.

Congratulations to all who raced. We hope you all dried out and warmed up eventually!
