DCGS students excelled in the National Cup East Central Final competition on Saturday 14th November.

The juniors produced a terrific team performance to qualify in 1st place and now progress to the National Final (for the 2nd year running) in Newquay in 3 weeks time. In a field of 62 runners Andrew Stenning led the team with a 4th place finish; Joe Cochrane finished 7th, James McCarthy 9th, Joe Aherne 13th, Luke Naylor 18th and Toby Wilson 21st.

The intermediate team unfortunately just missed out on qualification by finishing 5th overall. George Gillingwater produced an outstanding individual performance to finish 3rd, with Connor Lenihan 24th, Rahil Sachak-Patwa 25th, Charlie Lacey 35th, Tom Brown 40th and Mark Lilley 45th. This was an excellent result for a team consisting of 4 yr 9’s, in a yr 10 competition.
