FOUR cross country stars from Powys have earned a place in the Welsh squad.

Welshpool duo Callum Morgan and Maddie Griffiths, Newtown's Aled Breeze and Llanfyllin ace Deri McCluskey shone at the Welsh Schools Inter Association Cross Country Championships in Brecon on Wednesday.

The quartet are all members of the successful Maldwyn Harriers Athletics Club and will now represent Wales at the SIAB Championships in Scotland next month.

Morgan won the junior boys race while Brecon's Ruby Herdman was the Year 7 girls champion.

Elin Wozencraft of Sport Powys said: "It was a great day for Powys cross country athletes."

The next generation of cross country stars are now being encouraged to enter the Powys Primary Schools Cross Country Championships which will take place in Builth Wells on April 3.
