Fantastic running

26 November 2018

Great success for our Junior cross country team who came 9th overall in the English Schools' Athletic Association Cup final.

Just reaching the finals was a huge achievement; the Year 7 and 8 runners had to compete in three previous rounds to earn their place at the finals in Suffolk on Saturday. 

The Junior Girls category comprised 27 schools, who fielded a total of 162 girls. Our team performed exceptionally well on the day, with the following individual placings:

Lily 3rd

Sophie 23rd

Amber 58th

Emilia 81st

Darcy 139th

Phoebe 145th

Lily's third place is obviously a fantastic personal achievement, as well as a wonderful boost for the team effort. Ninth is an amazing result in a national competition, well done everyone.
