Running to glory

St Swithun’s took a team to the second round of the ESAA (English Schools Athletics Association) cross country South East regional finals at Sevenoaks School at the weekend. 

There were 75 runners competing in total. Our girls ran exceptionally well over the 2.4km distance and achieved the following places: Elizabeth Adamson L4 -14th, Maddie Turner U4 - 21st, Tallulah Jeffes U4 -22nd, Sophia Motala-Evans L4 - 30th, Jessie Blatchford U4 - 63rd, Alice Calder U4 - 64th. 

These excellent runs placed the team, representing Hampshire, 4th out of 13 teams in the South East regional finals, beating Putney High, Cams Hill, Surbiton and many more. This is St Swithun’s best achievement to date in this competition.
