Cross Country Silver Medalists

15th March 2018

On Wednesday 14th March 2018 our Year 5 boys took part in the West Yorkshire Cross Country Championships where they competed against schools from Calderdale, Bradford, Kirklees, Leeds and Wakefield. Having qualified for the finals by coming fourth in the Leeds Cross Country Championships, the boys knew it was going to be a tough challenge  as they faced the finest runners in the county. The course at Temple Newsam was 1375m long and provided plenty of opportunities for the boys to overtake and show what they could do. The team rose to the big occasion superbly with the first four runners home inside the first 59 out of a field of nearly 150 runners. The boys ran as a team from start to finish and won a wonderful silver medal for their efforts. To reach this third and final round of competition was an achievement in itself, but to win a silver medal was remarkable. Very well done to the team of Adam R, Reuben B, Ben F, Evan N and Rudy C on their tremendous performance.
