TRINITY School pupils representing Surrey had a successful day at the UK Inter-Counties in Birmingham last weekend.

Sophie Foreman (pictured) ran in the U17 women's event. After leading for much of the first lap, she finished in fifth place, but she was Surrey's highest scorer and won a team gold.

She now has team golds for all age categories - U13s, U15s and U17s and runs with Tonbridge Athletics Club.

Commenting on the race Foreman said: "On a personal basis I would have liked a medal, but at the same time I am really pleased that I was able to help secure gold for the team, who have now won for the sixth year in a row."

Both Foreman and Peter Chambers will be racing in Derbyshire tomorrow in the English Schools National Cross-Country Championships.

Meanwhile, in swimming, Trinity had a number of medallists in the Surrey Schools finals.

Louis Philips won silver in the senior 100m freestyle (54.56), Henry Knight won gold in the senior 100m backstroke (60.24), while Benedict Kelleher won gold in the senior 100m individual medley (61.34).

Rhys Singleton did well to win gold in the junior boys' 100m freestyle (56.72), Jacob Newcombe also won gold in the lower junior 100m backstroke (1:16.16), while Michael Eagling took bronze in the lower junior 100m freestyle (107.07).
