On Saturday 20th January, a group of students from King Edward VI Grammar School (KEVIGS) participated in the Cross Country at Burghley House in Stamford. Thirty KEVIGS’ students took part, with each and every one doing incredibly well, despite the rain that continuously drizzled throughout their 4K race. The muddy hills made it even more of a challenge. However, none of the KEVIGS’ students let this dampen their mood.
At the end of the day, eight of the KEVIGS’ students were put through to compete in the Anglian Schools Championships, which will take place on Saturday 3rd February in Ipswich. Emily Blyth (Year 7), Charlotte Davies (Year 8), Eloise Burke (Year 9), Isabelle Dhami, Lloyd Buck, Jayden Daniels (Year 10), Devon Low and Jevon George-Jones (Year 11) are the KEVIGS students who will be running for Lincolnshire.
King Edward VI Grammar School prides itself not only on academic triumphs, but also on athletic achievements. KEVIGS are extremely proud of everyone, who ran in the cross country, and to all who made their best efforts to support the school.
“Good luck to all of those who are competing next Saturday; we know you’ll do KEVIGS proud once more” Isobel Tighe, King Edward’s Student Journalist.
