Well done to Poppy Webb, Rob Doorly, Ben Sims and Freddie Jones who represented Oxfordshire at the English Schools Cross Country race in Leeds on Saturday. All ran extremely well on what proved to be a tough course in windy conditions. Particularly well done to Ben Sims who finished a fantastic 29th out of over 350 runners.
