Webster’s High School pupils did exceptionally well in the Angus Cross Country Championships held last week.

The S1 girls and boys set the standard, by claiming both team awards. Robyn Hill took girls gold, ahead of team-mates Sophie Scott (silver) and Eilidh De Clerk (bronze).

Robin Baillie clinched individual silver in the S1 boys’ event.

In the S2 events, Katie Anderson led from the tape and kept it going.

A superb race showed why she deserves her Scotland cap, having beaten the rest of the field by almost 30 seconds. The team trophy also came to Webster’s.

There was team silver in the boys’ S2 event, in which Chris Farrell took bronze position.

There was more team gold in the S3 girls’ race, where Ailsa Peters was beaten into silver position by a mere hair’s breadth in the spring to the line.

Although Webster’s didn’t receive a medal in the individual S3 boys competition, the team members did well to clinch silver.

In the senior girls event, Nivana Crighton earned a bronze, Webster’s girls also taking fourth, fifth and sixth places to earn team gold.

With five of the seven team trophies in the bag it was left to Stuart Reid to crown the day by taking the senior boys’ individual title for the third year on the trot, finishing in a superb time of 14 minutes and 32 seconds.
