On Wed 11th October Sponne took part in the Regional Round of the English Schools Cross Country Cup. The event was held in Bedford and had schools from Northants, Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire.
For the Junior boys, (Yr 7 and Yr 8) Liam Cowley was the first finisher in 18th position and the team finished an encouraging 8th position. The Inter girls team (Yr 9 and Yr 10) ran extremely well against tough opposition to claim 4th team place (first Northants school)- the same position achieved by Katy Mannix in the race itself. Pride of place went to the Junior girls team of Emily Hinton, Amy Harris, Lucy King, Amber Salkeld, Aimee Reynolds and Lily Issac - the final three all in Yr 7 - as they finished in third position and again leading Northants school. Individually Emily Hinton ran a superb race to finish in 2nd place. Well done to all!!
