3 of our girls took part in the British Inter-County Cross-Country Championships at Prestwold Hall on Saturday, competing for Warwickshire against the best runners from around Great Britain. On an undulating, muddy course around the scenic estate in blustery conditions our athletes acquitted themselves fantastically well. Rosa W ran in the U13 Girls race and finished an excellent 180th, Ana Lovett was in the U20 women’s category and came home in 113th, the 3rd Warwickshire athlete, and best of all was Madeleine Jacks who finished 68th and the second Warwickshire scorer.
Congratulations to all 3, as just getting to the event was a massive achievement in the first place. All 3 are running again next week in the English Schools XC Championships in Kent, along with 4 more Southam Girls, so watch this space for more Cross-Country news next week.
