Running to Nationals

10 November 2014

Our Junior and Intermediate Cross Country teams both raced in the Kent Schools South East Regional Cross Country Competition at Knole Park on Saturday, a huge event where they were amongst 1,529 teams representing 529 schools!

The Intermediate team of Year 9 & 10 girls produced fantastic performances with Kathleen Faes achieving 1st place, Genevieve Allan 6th, Evie Butler 13th, Emily Pitts-Tucker 34th and Emily Kendon 43rd.  Unfortunately, despite such great runs they finished in 4th place, just 2 points outside the 3rd place needed to qualify for the Nationals. 

Our Junior team of Year 7 and 8 students also gave excellent performances, with Rosanna Allan winning 4th place, Vita Milana 6th, Anna Williams-Walker 17th, Molly Goldsworthy 54th, Rebecca Smith 65th and Tilly Goldsworthy 67th.  The team finished 2nd overall and therefore qualify for Nationals in Cornwall on 29th November, a well deserved and exciting prospect.
