The Basildon Academies

Courtney excels in regional cross country competition

Well done to Year 8 student Courtney for recently competing in the Essex County Schools Cross Country Championships, held at Writtle University College, Chelmsford.

Courtney finished 4th out of 8 members of the Basildon District team, a remarkable achievement from the youngest entrant in this category.

Speaking after the 2.1 mile run, Courtney commented; “I found the event really competitive but also really good fun. I was proud of myself because I competed well against runners older than me. My family and PE teacher Mr Quaintance were there to support me, which I really appreciated.”
