The last weekend in November the junior and intermediate girls' cross country teams competed in the final of the National Schools' Cross Country Cup. They travelled to the Tretherras School, in Cornwall. The top 24 teams from across the country compete in this race after qualifying from local and regional rounds. The course was undulating and there was a very steep incline which the girls had to climb twice. The weather, for once, was glorious and the girls enjoyed running in the sunshine. Unheard of on the last weekend in November.

In the junior girls race the team finished in 16th position with the Skipton Girls School from North Yorkshire winning the title. The junior girls' team were: Isabelle Bates, Ella Findlay, Nieve Donnolly, Hannah Phipps, Alicia Lindsay, Natalie Smith and Beth Ashley.

In the intermediate girls race our team finished 7th with the The Godolphin and Latymer School from London taking the title:

The intermediate girls' team were Katie Faint, Megan Richardson, Iona Doyle, Joanna Rimmington, Juliette Le Mare, Katie Twell and Mia Slesser.

The following girls have been selected to represent the Borough of Southend Schools' at the Essex Cross Country Championships on 17th January at Hylands Park, Chelmsford:

Katie Faint, Natasha May, Megan Richardson, Iona Doyle, Joanna Rimmington, Isabelle Bates, Juliette Le Mare and Elena Irsukieta. Congratulations on your selection.
