Dave Sunderland Inter-Counties Cross-Country Champs – Himley Hall, Dudley

Bella B. and Rosa W. competed for the Warwickshire Junior Girls Team at the Inter Counties Champs against the best cross-country runners from counties ranging from Surrey to Cheshire.

On an undulating and testing Himley Hall course, bathed in warm autumn sunshine, both girls ran with their usual courage and determination. Bella running against Yr 9 girls ran fantically and was the 5th Warwickshire runner home in 38th overall, and Rosa battled to the finish, when feel less than 100%, to come home as the 11th Warwickshire athlete in 59th. The Junior Girls Team finished 4th, but contributed vital points to the Overall Trophy that Warwickshire won.

The next schools race with be on 21st Jan and runners will be selected from there for the National Schools Championships in March.

Hopefully, we’ll be able to send a good cohort from Southam to represent Warwickshire again this year.

Well done again Girls, and lets hope you have some company next time.

Mr MacGibbon
