Hicks ’19 Leads British to Gold at Euro Cross Country Championships

Bolles alumnus Charles Hicks ’19 placed fifth individually and led the British Under-20 team to victory at the European Cross Country Championships in Lisbon, Portugal, on December 8. Hicks qualified for the event with a second-place finish at the British national trials.

Hicks grew up in London prior to his family moving to Jacksonville where he enrolled at Bolles as a seventh grader. He is currently a freshman at Stanford University and a member of the Cardinal cross country and track and field teams.

“It’s a thrilling experience that hasn’t really set in for me yet,” Hicks said after his race. “I’m over the moon and I’m still in a little bit of shock, but I feel incredibly honored to have been given this opportunity.”
