A number of students from Queen Elizabeth Sixth Form College represented Darlington at the recent County Cross Country Championships at Bishop Auckland and all did very well.

The six-man Senior Boys' Team consisted of the following QE students, all of whom finished in the top 24:

Michael Harcourt - 9th

Mark Richardson - 11th

Ryan Pritchard - 19th

Adam Moses - 20th

Darren Flatman - 22nd

Chris Dargue - 24th

QE student Natalie Owens ran an excellent race for Darlington Senior Girls and came in fifth.

John Beilby, Head of Sport at Queen Elizabeth Sixth Form College, said: "Conditions at the county Cross Country Championships were heavy and provided a very stiff challenge, particularly on the steeper sections.

"I am delighted that so many of our college students were chosen to represent Darlington and that three of them - Michael Harcourt, Mark Richardson and Natalie Owens - have been selected to represent Durham in the coming Northern Region competition.
