The St Hugh’s XC squad enjoyed the challenging route at Copthill school on Wednesday. With long hill climbs, steep embankments and a variety of surfaces underfoot, the run was not for the faint hearted! All the St Hugh’s runners put their heart and soul into the competition, with the U9’s completing 1.3km and the U11’s running 2.4km. Perseverance skills were definitely needed by the older age group who had to complete the course twice! The U9 Girls ran brilliantly, with Florence coming in 2nd and Ailsa coming 7th. A special mention goes to the U11 Girls team who came 3rd overall; Penny (4th) Lucy (6th) Beth (9th) and Peyia (41st).

Congratulations to all runners!
