Congratulations to all the year 7 and 8 girls who competed in the Essex Cross Country Championships at Hylands Park this week. As predicted, the course was lovely and muddy but this did not deter the girls in green, who got off to a flying start in both races.
The year 7 girls finished in second place 168 points and Saffron Walden School took the honours with a team total of 113 points. The year 8 girls drew on points with Coopers Coborn School with both teams scoring 68 points. Isabelle, Ella, Nieve, Joanna, Juliette, Elena, Mia, Katie and Lucy have all been selected to represent Essex in an inter counties match on Saturday 29th March also at Hylands Park. Congratulations to them on their selection and good luck for the race.
