Second in Sussex Schools Cross Country

Toby finishes 2nd place in Sussex Schools Cross Country.

Three year 7 students from ARK William Parker Academy represented the school, recently, at the Sussex Schools Cross Country, which was held at Christ's Hospital school in Horsham. The event attracted several students from schools all around the county and involved both year 7 and 8 girls and boys.

In the Year 7 race Dylan Bolton finished a very creditable 45th out a total of 168 runners. Jaden Gerrish, unfortunately, didn’t make it to the finish line as he was injured. However it was Toby Salmon who stole the show, as he finished second behind an athlete who competes in national competitions. His excellent finish means that he has been selected to represent Sussex Schools at an event competing against different counties from the south east.
