Frithville’s William Wright competed in the hilly 4k cross country schools championships at Louth’s Hubbards Hills on Friday.

The race was for pupils from years eight and nine, and included more than 110 competitors from the Wolds and Coast District of Lincolnshire - which includes Alford, Horncastle, Louth, Splisby and Skegness.

Despite competing against bigger lads, William got off to a good start and maintained his position to finish eighth, coming very close to the top five runners.

This run qualifies William (pictured) to run in the Lincolnshire Schools Cross Country Championships in January at Caythorpe.
