ESAA Cross Country Schools Cup 2017 Round 1

The first round of the English Schools Athletics Association Cross Country Cup was held on the Laverstock Campus Laverstock. A fast early start to the course over playing fields followed by a demanding uphill and then steep decent created an interesting race for all the teams competing.

Despite early nerves St Mary’s athletes put in some outstanding performances. The Junior Girls race was led out by Harriet Hillman who never lost her lead to finish an impressive first out of 50 + runners. The rest of the team were not far behind with Kitty Marvin 6th, Lily Mallinson 11th, Olivia Montecelos Alvarez 13th, Eva Rose Ferguson 15th and Rosie Hodgson 29th. The top four scores count so the team finished with 31 points in 1st place an incredible achievement.

Finishing in the top two means that the Junior Girls team have now qualified to compete in the Regional Round of the Cross Country Cup which will be held on Saturday 11th November at Leweston.
