We took our largest team of 31 runners to this year’s Cross-Country Championships at Marple Hall and we had our best result so far. Sophie, Imogen and Lauren finished in the same order as they did in the Woodbank Y3/4 girls’ race only this time it was for 1st, 2nd and 3rd positions. With Hannah closely behind them in 5th place, this resulted in the team finishing in the gold medal position. The rest of our runners in this event also finished so well that our B-team finished 3rd in this race.
In the Y3/4 boys’ race, Isaac led the way finishing in a brilliant 2nd place and strong runs from Oliver, Thomas and Harley meant that High Lane won this race too. Hannah Wilson’s excellent 3rd place, together with the performances of Hannah K, Sophie and Freya made it a hat-trick of victories as they won the Y5/6 girls’ event. Finally, the Y5/6 boys topped off an excellent night as Noah came in 2nd place and Will, Zak and Dan ensured the team finished in 2nd as well.
Congratulations to all the other members of the squad who contributed to this being a special night and thank you to all the parents for their help in getting us all there.
