Jasmine Mamoany, a Year 8 student at Warden Park Academy, has had a great cross country season so far. She came first in the Mid Sussex Cross Country and 21st in the Sussex Schools Cross Country Championship.

This fantastic achievement earned her a place to represent Sussex in the Inter County Cross Country Championship in Reigate. Jasmine was very proud to to run for Sussex on Saturday at Reigate. The ground and weather conditions were cold, wet and very muddy!! Jasmine ran a great race coming in with a time of 13.54 (distance 3.2km) and her position was 97th. Although, she was not in the top placings, the competition was very hard and she was up against a lot of year 9 runners.

Hopefully, Jasmine will qualify for next year’s event and she will have gained good experience from this year and she really enjoyed the run!
