Cross Country Team Make Regional Finals

Cross Country Team Make Regional Finals

On Monday 3rd October, the Moreton Hall Cross Country team took part in the ESAA Cross Country Tournament held at Adams Grammar School. The Intermediate Team saw a fantastic result, beating all their opponents and thus crowned winners overall. Newport Girls High School came 2nd, Shrewsbury High School 3rd and Shrewsbury School 4th. Due to this excellent result, the Intermediate team will now qualify for the regional finals in November. Alongside this impressive result for the team, special congratulations must go to Coco Harpin (U4) for finishing 2nd in her race, which was a very strong field. 

The Junior Team finished 3rd overall, with Laura Hayton-Lee putting on an outstanding performance and finishing 2nd in her race. Both the winner and Laura were well ahead of the rest of the field, running much faster that the majority of boys who were taking part in the same race. This is indeed very impressive as Laura was also a year younger than her opponents. 

These results are very exciting of the sport of Cross Country at Moreton Hall. With training now taking place weekly, we know the girls will be well practiced come November when they compete on a regional level.
