Cross Country


The cross country team ran in the final Kirkby race of the season this week and completed the event in spectacular style. After a closely fought battle, the girls team finished in a fabulous second place after the 4 races. The boys have had an excellent season, leading the points from the very start.. They maintained their lead this week, and are now the Kirkby boys cross country champions.

The points for all of this season’s boy’s and girl’s races were totalled to find the overall school winner. Both our girls and boys have run consistently well this year and they were clear winners when the points were added. The team were crowned Kirkby cross country champions 2017.

We are so proud of the commitment and dedication shown by all of the children who have taken part. Also, a massive thank you to all parents, families and friends who have supported and encouraged the children at every race and in all weathers!

Finally, special congratulations must go to Josh  who ran his last cross country race for Ravenscroft last week, completing the race a long way ahead of the other runners to win yet another gold medal. Having won all of this season’s races, Josh was awarded a special medal to recognise him being the Kirkby champion. This is the third consecutive year that Josh has won this title, having never been beaten in any Kirkby or Knowsley competitions. An outstanding achievement and I wish him continued sporting success as he prepares to move to secondary school.
