The girls performed well at the Area Cross Country Championships held at Grittleton House on 6th November. The course was flat and fast and sticky in places but they coped well with the 4.2km distance, pacing the two-lap course effectively and managing a fast finish. Lily finished 2nd, Lara 3rd and Pollyanna 5th. They have now qualified to compete for the North Wiltshire Inter Girls Team at the Wiltshire County Championships on Saturday, 18th January at Sheldon/Hardenhuish Schools in Chippenham.

Eva-Rose finished 4th, Dora 8th, Ophelia 9th, Eliza 10th, Honor 11th, Amy 15th, Helena 16th and Claire 29th. Those finishing in the top 12 are expected to be invited to compete at the Wiltshire County Championships - we await the final team result.
