The U12A, U14A, and U16A Cross Country Teams went to Waterhall to compete in the Brighton Schools' Cross Country Championships in January, and each team performed brilliantly, with the U16s coming away as the champions!
We had a large squad out, full of excited and slightly nervous runners – this was the first Cross Country race for some, and others had not competed for a while.
The girls were absolutely brilliant, moving up positions well and building their pace as the run went on. We had some excellent finishes, with Isabella crossing the line in 4th and Poppy 8th for the U12 team. Elsa finished in a strong 19th place, competing up an age category for the U14 team. For the U16 team, Nia finished in a very impressive 3rd place, Isabella finished 5th, Pearl was 10th, and Amelia came in 12th.
As a result, the U12s finished 3rd overall, the U14s finished 4th, and the U16s won the championships for their age-group overall!
This is such an incredible achievement for the girls, and reflects all the hard work they have put in over the last year. Congratulations!
