On Thursday 20 May, the Churchie Cross Country team completed a very successful season by competing in the GPS Cross Country Championships at Limestone Park, Ipswich.
The Junior team of the 10, 11 and 12 years boys performed very well, finishing equal second in the Junior GPS Championships. The Senior team competed hard all day to finish in a very close fifth position, only one point from IGS, who came fourth.
