The cross country team performed amazingly in their first run of the Kirkby season, when they raced on St Chad’s field last week. The boys’ team won and the girls came second, beaten by just 2 points. As well as successes in the team events, there were outstanding individual performances too.
Josh finished in first place, running with confidence and determination. Mikey finished in 3rdplace and was followed by his brother Shay who came 6th. Two brothers also finished in the top 10; John in 7th and Jack in 10th. Finally for the boys, James finished in a fabulous 16th place in his first ever run.
In the girls race, four of the team achieved top 10 medals. Stevie-Lee came 5th and Lilymay 6th in their first ever cross country races. They were followed by Mollie in 7th and Chloe in 8th place. Just outside of the top 10 was Natalie in 13th and Meeka in 17th place.
A very impressive start to the season. Well done to all of the children who competed.
