On Saturday, Niamh Adams represented Northumberland at the English Schools XC Championships at the pictureque Wollaton Park, Nottingham. Having earned selection as a result of her superb performances over the winter, Niamh proudly lined up alongside nearly 350 of the best athletes from all over the country in the junior girls race.

Niamh put in a fine performance, recording a time of 14:43 over the 3.5km course, which was a stellar peformance. Niamh loved the experience and will no doubt be inspired to achieve even more in the future.
