Cross Country Continues
Although training was off last thursday due to the Rugby tournament the previous weekend had seen our runners excel again at Cleavley’s. We had almost 25 runners which is fantastic on a damp and boggy morning. as this was the last of the three preliminary races it was a chance for the athletes to show how much they are progressing. And what a show!
We had runner gaining personal bests, finishing in higher places than previous and showing such a fighting spirit that both teachers and very should be very proud. The award for never giving up this week should go to Savith Soni who unfortunately lost a trainer in the woods, picked it up and carried on running with just one on! Now that’s determination.
The Year 3 group continues to impress each week and were comfortably beating children from higher years and we even had some first timers this week keen to get involved.
The final mention must go to the three runners from Year 5 who finished within the Top 10.
Ashlee has really shown what she is made of this season. After finishing 5th in the first race and with a slight change in tactics she really showed what she is made of and improved to two third places in the last two races which put her 3rd overall and she received a well deserved Medal! Well done Ashlee!
Gabriel came second in the Year 6 boys race which was fantastic. In the same race Oscar came 6th and has shown brilliant improvements over the three races: 11th, 10th and 6th. (Soon he will be chasing down Gabriel.)
The next race is the first of the big ones – The Salford Schools Cross Country Championships. It is at Bolton Road playing fields on the 4th November – hopefully we will be seeing all the squad in action for the school!
