AT the North Somerset Schools cross-country championships held at Blaise Castle, Gordano School took overall honours, winning four team titles, whilst Backwell School took the other two titles.

Highlight for Gordano was the clean sweep of the minor boys first three places, whilst Harry Thornton of Clevedon School finally won a well deserved senior title, with Sophie Feboul winning the senior girls.

Best race of the day came in the inter boys when Cameron Coetzee (Gordano) and Luke Jacobs battled it out for 4kms shoulder to shoulder, with Luke just getting the edge in the final 100 metres.

The North Somerset schools team is now selected to compete in the Avon Schools championships in January.
