John Spendluffe Technology College )JSTC) students took part in the annual district cross country championships at Hubbard’s Hills in Louth on December 6.

Despite the cold weather, the Alford college had good representation in all age groups and had a number of students hoping for a top 20 finish and qualification to represent the Coastal and Wolds district at the county cross country championships in the new year.

In the Year 7 boys competition, Liam Treacy qualified for the next round, finishing in seventh position overall in a strong field of over 100 competitors.

In the Year 7 girls competition, JSTC had two qualifiers - Ella-Mae Hawse (fourth position) and Alisha Marshall (20th position), again from a large field of over 100 athletes.

The junior (Years 8 and 9) competition saw some fierce battles in both the boys and girls races.

From the boys team, Liam Hawse qualified for the county round, finishing in eighth position, whilst in the girls competition Mollymae Crashley also qualified, finishing in ninth place.

Whilst there were no individual qualifiers from the intermediate (Years 10 and 11) teams, there were a number of strong performances in two very competitive fields.

“Big congratulations to all students involved,” said a spokesperson for John Spendluffe.
