Kent Cross Country Championships
On Saturday 18 January, nine Invicta students participated in the Kent Cross Country Championships, which took place in Dartford at the Wilmington Grammar School for Boys. Every student had earned their place in the team by coming in the top 20 in the Maidstone District Trials.
All students had been out training during lunchtimes on the school's astro turf and in their own time to ensure they were properly prepared for the challenge ahead. The Year 7's race was first, in conditions conducive to cross country - plenty of mud! Lauren was the highest placed Maidstone team member by coming 21st in the whole of Kent. This means she has qualified for the next round of the competition which is the Inter County event.
Well done to Sophie, Molly, Esther, Caitlin and Lily from Year 7 and Josie, Hannah and Alex in Year 8-9. We are proud of your achievements and thank you to Miss Harris for accompanying the girls.
