There were podium places for three RPAC Juniors at the Surrey Schools XC Championships held in Reigate Priory yesterday.
Lucy Broderick became an automatic selection for Surrey in the prestigious English Schools National XC Championships in Leeds on March 17th, finishing 3rd in the Inter-Girls (Y10 and 11) race. Matthew Pickering also took 3rd place, competing in the Y7 boys race. For Lucy Dénecé it was 1st place in the Y7 girls to become the 2018 Surrey Schools Y7 Girls XC Champion! All three faced tough competition with the field made up of runners who all had to pre qualify through their district races in the autumn.
For Matthew and Lucy Dénecé, English Schools qualification has to wait another year.
Running in wet, muddy conditions several more from RPAC qualified to run for Surrey Schools in the upcoming South East Inter-Counties XC matches with the U15's and up competing in Berkshire on February 3rd, and the U13/U14's in Sussex on 24th March. Full results from yesterday yet to be published.
