We had 10 athletes selected for the English Schools in Liverpool at Sefton Park which is the most we have ever had selected. The athletes went on the team bus on Friday afternoon and stayed over night prior to the event.
First race of the day was the Inter Girls and we had Alice BM who finished a very respectable 126th out of 340 .
Next up were the Junior Boys: we had Sam H running in his first English schools Cross Country. He finished well in 164th out of 340.
Following this were the Junior Girls. Millie R in her first ever English Schools Championships finished a fantastic 116th as bottom age athlete. Keira D went with the fast pace early on and gave it a good go but unfortunately ran out of steam and dropped back to finish 117th with exact same time as Millie.
Then we had the Inter Boys. Will S ran strong throughout after being spiked and finished an amazing 220th out of 330.
The last race was the Senior Boys and first in was Matt H running for Somerset in a fantastic 51st place. Ollie L finished 105th in a gutsy run, 3 seconds ahead of Sam G in 111th. Next up was Ben H in 156th and the ever improving Will C in 194th out of 325.
A great experience for all involved, some incredible running and amazing finishes from a very strong group of Athletes. Ever improving!
