On Saturday 15 January, ten Godolphin girls attended the Wiltshire County Cross Country Running Trials. Girls’ were competing against up to fifty others in their age category in a bid to represent Wiltshire at the South West Championships in February. Only the top ten girls in each age group would qualify, with 11th – 13th also qualifying as reserves.
Conditions were cold although thankfully not raining, and the girls covered between 2.3 – 3.8km depending on their age. Every girl ran brilliantly, with all Godolphin finishers coming in the top 30 athletes in their heat. A special mention must go to Alice T who qualified 5th and progresses to the next round for senior girls, Juliet L who finished 12th and will be second reserve for intermediate girls, and Amelia W who finished in 14th for the Junior girls, just outside of qualification.
