On Saturday 12th the Yr 7/8 girls cross country team took part in the Regional final of English Schools Cup at Bedford. There were 15 schools at the event with each school having been first or second in their respective County championships.
The standard of the competition was extremely high but the girls acquitted themselves extremely well. Katie Mannix led the Sponne team finishing in an excellent 6th position - only 10 seconds behind the winner. The next counter for Sponne was Yr 7 runner Emily Hinton, a short way behind in 9th position. Georgia Corcoran finished in 29th position with the remaining runners being Cara Mannix, Caitlin Donohue and Mia Cowley.
Overall the team finished in 5th position on the day - an outstanding performance as this competition took in the whole of the East Midlands and East Anglia.
Well done indeed !!!
