A huge round of applause to King's Park Girls' and Boys' Cross Country teams who were both crowned Southern Area Champions once again. This is the Boys 4th Southern Area title in a row and the Girls third in a row. The Girls won every race in the league, but the boys had to come from behind to fight off a stiff challenge to their crown from a very good Bocombra team.
The girls scored an amazing 30 points yesterday at Banbridge, 63 points ahead of their nearest rival. The boys, who sat one point behind their nearest rival, overturned this margin to run a comprehensive victory, gaining 48 points to their rival's 79 points, a margin of 31 points.
It was a superb team effort in both cases but special mention has to go to Kate Holmes (P7) and Ellie Cousins (P6}, who came first and second respectively in the Girls' race and also to Joel Todd (P7), who came second in the Boys' race.
Also looking to the future, mention must go to Leah Balfour and Alex Kerr (both P5), who came first and second in the Fun Run.
