Three Boston runners represented Lincolnshire Schools AA in the Anglian Schools Cross-Country Championships at Northampton on Saturday.

Over an undulating parkland course and in fine, dry but windy conditions, under 13 Ben Anthony (Boston Grammar School) finished a promising 38th out of 60 competitors at the end of the 2,900m challenge.

His placing was well above his Lincs Schools Championships ranking.

In the under 15s boys’ 2,900m event Blake Garwell (Boston Grammar) struggled following a chest infection in the week prior to the race.

He finished in 43rd position.

In the senior girls’ event, Hannah MacLeod (Boston High School) produced a determined performance to enter the funnel in 55th place at the end of a testing 4,175m around Abington Park.
