On a cold and frosty Monday afternoon, I had the pleasure of taking 15 students from MGGS to Mote park to compete in the Maidstone Schools Cross Country Competition. The Year 7s ran first with Aoife F leading the way, with Lilia B coming a very close second. Neve P, Daisy R and Sophie H also came in the top 15 out of a field of approximately 70 runners. Next came the Intermediate girls made up of Soraya C, Maria Z, Ruby H, Rebecca D and Caitlin L. In this race we finished a respectable 4th, 5th, 9th, 10th and 12th. Finally, the Junior girls raced. By this point in the day the temperature had dropped and we were feeling decidedly chilly. But the junior girls stepped up and finished 7th, 10th, 11th and 12th. The team consisted of Sofia C, Daisy G, Keira H-M and Megan R.
Well done to all who took part, it was a lovely way to spend a Monday afternoon. We are looking forward to hearing who has qualified for the Kent competition in January. Mrs Shave
