Invicta prove their strength in the Kent Schools Cross Country Champs


Saturday 21st January saw athletes take over Central Park in Dartford for the the Kent Schools Cross Country Champs.  It was a chance to run for their schools and districts for the Invicta athletes. Conditions were good with the sun out and a partially frozen course keeping the worst of the mud at bay.

Standout stars were the Intermediate Boys (Yrs 10-11) of Noah Paterson 1st and Adam Whitlock 2nd, and Senior Boys (Yrs 12-13) Jake Stevens 2nd and Jamie Keir 4th.  The girls were determined not to be outshone in the sunshine with Senior Girls (Yrs 12-13) Amy Goodhand 4th and Teigan Sullivan 11th.

There were other great top 20 performances from Seb Sanz-Kozyra (11th - Junior Boys), Nate Thomson (15th - Junior Boys), Eliza Mills (14th - Senior Girls) and Millie Knightley (16th - Senior Girls). Many of these athletes will have the chance of being selected to represent Kent Schools at the forthcoming Intercounties and English Schools Cross Country Champs.
