Aisling McHale produced another stunning Cross Country performance at the weekend to win the inter schools North West regional final.  She claimed the scalps of several runners who had been faster than her over the course of the track season.

This is inherently a team event and her school, Loreto were hoping to qualify for the National Final.  Fortunately, they had another of our super young girls on the team as Verity Charnley stormed home in an impressive 11th place on the back of her superb victory in the second John Leigh Park schools race.

With some other great performances from the other Loreto U13 girls, the team managed to qualify for the National Final.  This will take place at Sevenoaks, all the way down in Kent on 25 November.  Good luck to all the girls as they represent their school and our great town!
