Determination, stamina and team spirit at the Somerset County Cross Country Championships


Somerset County Cross Country Championships.

Last Saturday 17 Hazlegrove children headed off to compete in the Somerset County Championships. They had qualified to run at these Championships as a result of the Yeovil Area Trials back in December.  

Over 300 children from across Somerset came together to race at the superb Aldon Hill venue.

Our Year 7 girls were first off and we were delighted that two of our runners finished in the top 10 - Lara R finished 3rd and Carina H 8th in the girl’s race.

Then it was the turn of our Year 7 boys, and wow, what an impression they made – we had 5 runners in the field of 52 boys and all five finished in the top 14. With four gaining top 10 places – Josh C 2nd, Philip M 3rd, Joseph P 7th and Tom A-H 10th.

The Year 8 children have to run with the Year 9’s in the junior age group and hence their races can be quite tough.

In the girls race Alice de P finished a brilliant 8th and in the boys race, which was a very fast 3.7km, Jake F finished 8th.

Huge congratulations to all of our Hazlegrove runners, who all competed so well last weekend.
