Alex Hampson was the star of the show for the Peterborough team that took part in the Cambridge Schools Cross-Country Championships at the King’s School, Ely, on Saturday.

The Nene Valley Harriers ace stormed to a comprehensive win in the Senior Boys race.

Peterborough also had two third places to cheer in the girls races - Amelia Monaghan in the junior girls run and Ella Blake in the senior girls race.

Blake’s effort and good support from Milly Tovey (6th), Emma Gibbons (9th), Aisling Ruff (10th), Elishia Reid (11th) and Sarah Chan (12th) earned Peterborough their only team win in the senior girls age group.

The leading runners in Saturday’s county schools championships will go on to represent Cambridgeshire at the Anglian Schools Championships at the Royal Hospital School, Ipswich, on Saturday February 7, and then a Cambridgeshire team will be chosen to take part in the prestigious English Schools Championships at Witton Park, Blackburn, on Saturday March 14.
