County Cross Country Finals

We recently took eleven cross country runners over to Christ’s Hospital School in Horsham for the Sussex Schools Year 7 & 8 County Cross Country Finals. All state and private schools in the Sussex area were invited, and the competition was very strong. The St Leonards Academy athletes were selected based on the high level of athletics ability they had shown during cross country lessons, or their performance in the Hastings & Rother Schools Cross Country held at Battle Abbey School earlier in the academic year.

There were approximately 200 runners in each race, and every one of our pupils finished in the top 100 athletes. Stand out performances were:

Theo Oak (Yr7 boys) – 41st

Blake Henderson (Yr 7 boys) – 54th

Elisha Paige (Yr 8 girls) – 63rd

We also entered a team in the Year 7 Boys event, who finished in the top 10!
