An Orley 1-2-3 in the Harrow Borough Cross Country!

The Harrow Borough Cross Country Championships were held at Harrow School on Thursday afternoon of this week. Nathan Beardwell represented the school in the U15 category for Years 8 and 9 pupils. As one of the few Year 8s participating, Nathan did extremely well to finish a very creditable 10th out of 45 and is first reserve to represent Harrow in the Middlesex Schools Cross Country. In the U13 category for Years 6 and 7, Alex Gabbitas (one of few Year 6s participating) finished 22nd out of 43 – another good achievement. The main highlight, however, was that Orley Farm took a clean sweep of the medals with Nicholas Hart taking bronze, Ben Harrison grabbing silver and Matthew Harrison claiming gold in a truly outstanding performance. These three boys will now go on to compete in the Middlesex Schools Cross Country on Thursday 29th January; a photo of our muddied medallists can be found below!
