English Schools Cross-Country Cup 2017
Mrs Smart sent this report.
‘On Saturday, 11 November 2017 our Junior and Intermediate teams ran at the Regional Finals of this competition having qualified at the first round last month.
On a fairly flat but muddy course the Juniors set off first in a field of 70 runners from schools across Kent, Sussex, Surrey and Hampshire. They battled hard in the wet conditions and were placed 5th overall out of 12 teams participating. A fantastic result for Anna Palmer, Annabel Young, Lily Crossley, Emma Ryan and Katie Evans. By the time the Inters went out on the course, conditions underfoot were even worse. Despite this the team of Charlotte Young, Izzy Shelley, Billie Rouse and Millie Morris ran really well and finished 3rd overall which qualifies them for the National Finals on Saturday November 25. This puts them in the top 25 teams nationally an amazing achievement and we wish them luck for next Saturday’
