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.
The High 5 netball team competed in the Knowsley event, facing tough competition from 15 schools from across the borough. Having won all of their matches in the heats, they went onto what must have been the longest semi-final in history! With no sign of a winner after 30 minutes the match went to golden goal- again with no goal being scored. The only option left was to have a ‘penalty shootout’ which took us into the final having won 1-0 with a goal by Chloe.
Th final was a similar affair, going to extra time and then to golden goal. Despite having the majority of the play, the goal would not come and we were eventually beaten 1-0 during the golden goal period.
Outstanding performances from:
Chloe (captain), Stevie Lee, Aimee, Lilymay, Casey Magee, Ben, McKenzie.
