Devon Schools CC

Devon Cross Country Schools Championship

Sidmouth College had excellent representation with eight students competing at the Devon cross country schools championship at Stover School. Competing as part of the East Devon team was SIDMOUTH Running Club member Kate Marriot. Kate has risen through the ranks since taking part in the Junior Saturday morning training sessions so successfully run by the club’s Janet Ackford over the years. Kate had made this event coming through the preliminary stages with some amazing runs.

This was to be an extraordinary day for the East Devon team taking 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th places overall in the minor girls race.

Kate, coming third has now achieved her dream of a place in the national event in Norwich in March. Also taking part from the club was Toby Garrick who came 7th in the inter boys race and he to hopes to qualify for the national event.

Congratulations to you both.
