Norfolk's Under-17 girls led the county challenge in the Anglian Schools Cross Country Championships at Abington Park, Northampton.

Nelly Porter in second place was backed up by Rachel Bruce (third) and Meredith Winship (fourth).

With all six scorers in the first 11 places an overall win was assured and this will surely be Norfolk's top team at the English Schools Championships in Norwich next month.

Abigail Durrant was engaged in a great battle for the lead in the under-15 girls event but ended up second. She was well backed up by Jessica Norkett (sixth) and Kate Willis (seventh) to help Norfolk to another team win.

In the under-17 boys race Will Mahoney finished sixth while Millie Solway finished fifth in the under-19 girls race. Jake Stearman (15th) was the first senior boy home.
