& East Dorset Cross Country League 2003
This was the biggest and best league so far if numbers are anything to go

A total of 692 pupils competed in at least one race and 331 completed at
least three races. There was an excellent turnout in most age groups except for
the Senior Girls.

race, which only counts in the event of a tie (positions are based on the best
three out of the four races). In the Year 6 & 7 Girls category, the overall
winner was a guest runner from Blandford, but the league title goes to Rebecca
Cutts of the Yarrell's School in Upton. We welcome guest runners from outside
the area, but this is on the understanding that they cannot take individual or
