Runners' Trophy Win

Hutchie athletes put in a fantastic performance at the Scottish Schools' Cross Country Championship on Wednesday - with both team and individual competitors enjoying success.

Kate Richardson (S2) finished 2nd individual out of a field of 183 runners and has now been selected to represent Scotland at the Cross Country International on the 19th of March in Falkirk.

The 1st year girls team of Jill Carswell, Lauren Kane, Lucy Anderson and Miriam Gilbride finished 2nd while the 2nd year girls team of Kate Richardson, Sofia Kirkpatrick, Francesca Davidson and Anna MacKenzie won their event and retained their trophy from the previous year.

The senior girls team of Kirsty Griffiths, Sarah Eunson, Katie Cattanach and Nicola O'Neill were delighted to win their race - the first time the senior girls have won the A age group event since 2009.

The school selected 55 pupils to compete in the event which took place in fantastic sunshine at Beach Park in Irvine - all the runners put in a great effort.

Congratulations to everyone who took part and well done Kate on your Scotland call-up.
