On a very wet, windy and cold Wednesday, a group of 14 students ranging in age groups, were taken to Haldon Forest in Exeter to compete in the ISA South West Regional Cross Country event. This event sees pupils from Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, South Wales, Dorset and West Hampshire compete to gain the first ten places in each of the races, to win the opportunity to represent this region at a National event in March.
Although our runners had to deal with a very wet and slippery course, cold temperatures, and rain we had four of our pupils finish in the top ten in their races and therefore they qualify for the Nationals.
Our congratulations go to Olivia in Year 3, who was racing against Year 4 girls! She finished in 6th place. Victoria in Year 6 for finishing in 7th place. Lea who also finished in 6th position. Finally, a huge congratulations to Sam in Year 6 who won his race, finishing in 1st place! Congratulations to everyone who took part in this event. The course was a difficult one with some challenging hills, and I am proud of you all for doing your best.
