Cobham School On the Run

Megan Coffey
A Cobham School leads the way in Surrey Schools AA Cross Country Championships as on Saturday 18th January in very muddy conditions Notre Dame School beat off 14 schools in the Surrey Schools cross country championships to lift the U11 title.

The Year 6 girls made a strong start from the off with Megan Coffey out in 4th position after the first corner. Megan ran a great race finishing in 3rd position overall with a supporting team of runners- Ella Diack, Annabel Simpson, Jessica McNally, Anna Gawander, Kayleigh Mengers and Tilly Jarvis-Smith finishing strongly to take the title for the team. Notre Dame’s three fastest; Megan, Annabel and Tilly will represent South East Schools Inter County Cross Country Meeting in March.

Not to be outdone, Notre Dame’s U10 team finished 4th, the Year 8 runners both finished in the top 20 and the Year 7 pair finished in the top half in their respective age groups.

Megan said "It was a difficult course with very muddy conditions. It was a really tough competition and I gave it my all. I was really chuffed when I heard the team won. I’m looking forward to representing Surrey in the U13 event in Essex on March 29th"
