The Welsh dragon roared in Yorkshire

The SDC fell running revolution continued at the ISA Sport UK XC North run at Scarisbrick, in Yorkshire, with Lois taking first in senior girls, Max came third in senior boys and Gilbert stormed the field to come second in middle boys.

It was a fine collective contribution by all of our 14 pupils who took part, and the school delivered a masterclass in endurance on what was a cold and frosty day.

Independent schools from all over the North West and North Wales took part.

Lois and Max both run for Wales, and their coach Matthew Roberts, who teaches geography at SDC, happens to have a Team GB vest.

Arthur Astbury SDC fitness coach said: "As the afternoon moved on and the temperature dropped even further the 11,12&13 race began with some of St David's strongest athletes competing."

"There was a lot of pressure on the shoulders of these older runners as for some it would be their last chance to qualify for the nationals before departing school."

Mr Astbury continued: "Isaac and Hayden fell a few places short of the top 10 qualifying spots, however Max managed to pace himself well and put all that training into practice finishing in third place."

He added: "The day however was stolen by St Davids very own Lois, who left all competition for dead, and finished in first place in her race, finishing over 30 seconds ahead of the girl in second place and hardly breaking a sweat in the process."  On the whole it was an extremely fun day out taking part and reminding the other ISA schools in the North of England and Wales, St David's mean business when they come to compete. Next up is the North Wales XC in Dolgellau.
