Maisy Luke in Year 9 has had an incredible month of cross country running. On Saturday 16th March, she came 2nd in the junior girls race at the English Schools Cross Country championships at Temple Newsam, Leeds. She ran an excellent race on a very tough muddy wet course and, as a result of this, was awarded an English Schools vest and an invitation to run in an international competition against Scotland, Wales and Ireland schools in Dublin on Saturday 23rd March 2019. She is only the 8th girl in Cornwall of all age groups to achieve this honour since the event started!
So on Saturday 23rd March, Maisy ran in Dublin for Team England who won gold at the event! Maisy came 7th overall out of 32 runners. Maisy actually ran the 2, 1500m laps with only one shoe after being spiked on the heel at the start of the race and still came 7th, clearly showing amazing resilience and determination!
