Annie Rooks was the only local athlete to compete at the English Schools XC on Saturday at Witton Park, Blackburn.

She had already won the Norfolk Schools and was the first Norfolk girl home at the Anglian Schools.

Over a hilly and very muddy testing course she followed the leading group but lost touch with them on the long run up the hill. She managed to pull some places back and again was the first Intermediate girl home for Norfolk with the second Norfolk girl almost 200 places behind her.

A finish in the top third was a very good run. Annie now looks forward to the track season starting in April.
