Gold for Maisy in Kent Schools' Championships!
Year 11 pupil Maisy took part in the Kent School's AA Cross Country Championships this weekend, and took first place, an incredible 11 seconds ahead of the second place finisher.
The county schools’ final followed a close second place finish in the prestigious Knole Run, where Maisy finished just one second behind first place, and a second place finish in the Kent County Championships.
It’s the second time Maisy has held the Kent Schools’ Champion title, and this win qualifies her for the English Schools’ Championships in March.
Speaking afterwards, Maisy commented, “The Knole Run was extremely close, and although frustrating to finish just a second behind, I was pleased with my performance and it gave me more determination for the Schools’ Championship. After two weeks of getting a silver medal, it finally all came together and I won by eleven seconds. It means I will be first in the pen on the start line at the English Schools’ Championships, which will give me the best possible start.”
