Schools Cross-Country News
This weekend is the English Schools Cross-Country Final at Rugby. Local schools Loreto Grammar, Ashton-on-Mersey Sports College and Altrincham Grammar are to be congratulated on making the final and will be representing the NW of England.
As part of their final preparations all three schools took part in the Altrincham H & AC Schools League last weekend. This match involved twenty schools and over four hundred athletes and is the strongest schools league in the North of England and as such has played a big part in the success of the local schools.
A number of Sale Harrier athletes represented their schools with Tia Blissett, James Malloy, Ellie Twite, Ciara Lydon, Ewan Gilchrest and Rachel Hibberd all winning their events. Schools Leagues and Cup competitions are the grass roots of our sport and let's hope the 2012 Olympics will boost both interest and numbers taking part.
