Molly Webster finished fourth in the Senior Girls´ race at the Area Cross Country Championships held at Giggleswick School in November. She will now go on to represent Harrogate and Craven at the County Cross Country Championships in January.
The Under 19s girls´ team reached the semi-finals of the County Cup this year, but were knocked out by St. John Fisher´s in a closely contested match.
The senior team has had to change drastically from last year as so many players have moved on. The girls are a committed bunch and many of them are helping out and training the Year 7 team, which is much appreciated.
The Year 11s and seniors have played in a number of matches and will have their tournament at Easter. We were victorious as seniors last year, in a superb undefeated season, so no pressure girls! But use Lydia Clissitt as your inspiration.
