Meet MX team member, Sarah Kebbell.

Sarah’s a low key boss and not just on the hockey field.

Recently Sarah ran the annual Cigna Round the Bays and took out the women’s 6.5km event in an elite time of 24 minutes 22 seconds. Sarah blitzed the women’s field of just over 3,000 participants and came in an impressive 15th overall.

To put it in perspective, Sarah is just 15 years old and only a few months through her year 11 studies at Queen Margaret’s College. What’s more, she ran the race in under 4 minute kilometres and, as far as the running season goes, is only getting warmed up.

Sarah hopes to compete and win National titles at both the Track & Field Nationals and Cross Country Nationals. She also hopes to play hockey for the Queen Margaret’s first XI and represent Wellington in the under 15 age group.

Sarah has taken a break from MX to balance all of her commitments, which is something we encourage, if needed, as we think it helps to develop well rounded athletes. We’re excited to see Sarah's progression over the next few years, and are expecting big things - watch this space!
