Dan and Macy shine at prestigious cross country championships

By Jack and Dawson, both 14

Two inspirational TKASA students, Dan Maydew and Macy Noad represented Somerset Schools at the South West Cross Country Championships in Chippenham.

Both athletes had great performances and ran extremely well on a very flat, quick and windy course.

The competition brought together the top ten athletes from all seven counties in the South West and the standard of runners was very high.

Macy (intermediate girl) had a strong race and came in 32nd overall and 4th Somerset runner back. This is a fantastic achievement as she has another year in this age group.

Dan Maydew (Senior boy) also had a strong race and came 4th overall and 2nd runner back for Somerset.

This again is a great achievement as it was his last chance to represent Somerset Schools at the South West Championships.

Both have now been selected to represent Somerset at the prestigious English Schools AA Cross Country Championship in Kent, the top eight athletes (in each age group) from all 46 counties in England will be ready and raring to go.

Best of luck to them both!
