- Cross Country -

Cross country has been a feature of the Westville Boys’ High School sports offering since 1CrossCountry970. The School has enjoyed notable successes in the sport in recent years, and our runners regularly feature in KZN team selections.

Up to 40 pupils participate in cross country each year across the U15, U17 and U19 age groups. The season starts at the end of the first term and runs until the end of the second term. The teams compete in a league that usually consists of seven races across various venues in the greater Durban area, including Greyville, Amanzimtoti, Crawford La Lucia, Westville, Gelofte, Thomas More and Kearsney.

Internally an inter-house cross country competition is held each year at WBHS.

While WBHS has traditionally always performed well in cross country, a truly special time for this sport at the School was in the 1970s. Between 1972 and 1976 the School won the Natal Schools and Natal Junior Championships every year, and was placed first in the South African Schools Championships in 1974 and 1975, and was the runner up in 1976. From 1970 to 1976 23 of our runners represented Natal Schools.  In 1976 the cross country team undertook a successful tour to the USA, the first of its kind by a South African school.
