The annual County schools cross country took place on Saturday the
23rd January at Newquay sports centre, a new venue this year.
The races began at 10am with the intermediate years 10/11 and senior
girls years 12/13. Mounts Bay intermediate girls performed
outstandingly with three being selected for the Cornwall schools team.
Grace Brock’s recent hard work in training paid off with a
finish in first place, not only that, she beat all the senior girls
as well as her own category of intermediates. Grace took to the front
from the off and from there she never looked back and had an outstanding run.
She will be looking for selection into the English schools vests this
year for sure. Joining her in the Cornwall team will be Imogen Wood
narrowly missing out on a medal and Katie Walker. Well done girls!
Katie Trehair – Davies had another top finish for MBA finishing in 8th
place, with several other students finishing in the top 20 in the minor girls. The
boys also performed well in their intermediate race, especially when
waiting 2 hours to race and the course becoming even more cut up.
All Mounts Bay Academy students worked hard in tough windy and muddy conditions.
Congratulations to them all.
