You can tell the Cross Country season has started – the rain, wind and cold weather arrived on Monday morning with the girls competing in the County round of the English Schools’ Cup. There were some excellent performances all round – the highlight being Laura Hole coming 3rd in the Junior Team race. On points accrued for the first four runners, the Junior team finished joint second place (38 points) along with Loreto but were placed third overall after the 5th runner’s place was taken into account. Due to illness and injury the Intermediate team had to compete with the bare minimum of 4 runners but again finished in 3rd place. Well done to the juniors – Laura, Emma, Millie, Alice, Charlotte and Holly and the intermediates – Lizzy, Hannah, Freya and Ellie. We now have to wait for other counties to submit results to see if we qualify for the Regional Round.
