Year 8 students Natalia Austin and Jake (pictured) are really looking forward to competing in the New Balance English Schools' Cross Country Championships at Sefton Park, Liverpool on 7 March 2020. They have trained extremely hard and it has paid off to reach this fantastic stage. Jake recently represented Kent at Prestwold Hall, Loughborough in the National Inter Counties Championships. He came 22nd overall in the under 15 boys category but sixth in his younger actual age group.
Everyone at Dane Court wishes both athletes the best of luck.
Update (23 March 2020):
Jake took part in the English Schools Cross Country on Saturday at Sefton Park in Liverpool.
He finished in 12th place out of 334 finishers. He was the first runner back for the junior boys Kent team.
An amazing result for the Kent junior boys team as they finished first place overall in the team results.
