Cross Country weekend

8 Lingfield athletes from years 5 to 9 compete at ESAA and ISA events 

Lingfield cross country runners were out in force at the weekend with 8 athletes running on Saturday. 

James (yr 9) ran in the ESAA Cross Country Finals for Surrey Athletics. This is a country-wide schools competition and the Surrey team came 3rd in this race.

At Worksop College, Nottinghamshire, 7 Lingfield pupils took part in the ISA National Cross Country Finals.

From Senior School, Alex (yr 8) and Ellie (yr 7) ran fantastically well coming 14th and 27th respectively.

Our Prep under 11 runners competed over a course of 2000m against the six other regions in the country.

In the girls’ race, sisters Lucy and Daisy, ran with great determination to finish 46th and 56th respectively. This bodes very well for next year as Lucy and Daisy are still only in Year 5. Next to tackle the same course, were our three Year 6 boys, Arthur, Riley and Louis. Arthur was the first London South runner over the line to take an outstanding 2nd place and receive the silver medal. Riley and Louis displayed grit and perseverance to finish in 45th and 55th respectively.

Many congratulations to all our runners who ran with great determination on the day.
