On Wednesday 5th October the first round of the England School’s Cross Country Cup took place at Newquay Sports Centre on a lovely sunny day. The course was nice and dry and some fast times were expected. The junior girl’s team ran very well and came in 5th place out of 12 teams, Izzie Leigh ran particularly well coming in 10th place with Anya Hocking 19th, Millie Danielsen 24th , Joanna Vyvyan 25th and Evie Ducros 30th.
The junior boys went one place better finishing 4th and only missing qualification for the regional finals by one place. The team of Jacob Lamboll (7th) Isaac Murray (8th) Memit Aldemir (33rd) Ben Edwards (37th) Ben Stone (41st) and Lenny Howarth (47th) worked hard and gave everything.
Both the inter girls (Rosie Bartlett, Scarlet Hassan, Laura Heather, Lily Holdsworth and Scarlet Hughes) and inter boys (Harris Mier, Benjy McCartney, Joey Newburne Munn, Sam Norton, Ben Issaka and Bruno Cryan) team ran very well and have both qualified for the regional finals to be held at King’s Taunton on 12th November.
