The first race of the junior cross country league took place at Millfield Prep School with 11 runners from Years 5 and 6 representing Hugh Sexey.
Over 400 runners from over 20 schools took part in the event. With conditions fair and the ground firm and holey in places, our runners gave their all; albeit some finding the holes en route.
The girls team of Matilda, Izzy, Emilia, Sofia and Ruby are currently placed a credible 5th out of 21 teams. Ruby, on her debut for the team, achieved an excellent 15th place.
The boys team of Oscar, Zach, Fynn, Lewis, Charley and Charlie look set for another battle with Millfield over the season. Having won the league last season, our boys team are currently second to Millfield. The team performance was very much aided by three runners in the top 20; Lewis 18th, Fynn 10th and Charlie 6th.
