Yesterday 45 of our children braved the cold and rain to take part in the South Tyneside Schools cross country. With over 400 children competing it was a tough day but our children all excelled, with some of them competing in their first cross country race.
The day started with the Year 3 girls race. Evie took the bronze medal in this close run race. Next followed the Year 3 boys race in which Harry powered home to victory, taking the gold medal. The top 3 finishers in the team counted as the team points, and as a result of excellent runs by the rest of the team both the Year 3 girls and boys teams finished first.
Raychel was just pipped to the post for the bronze medal finishing 4th in a tough race followed by Eden in 6th. In the year 4 boys race Nathan dominated from the front to pick up the gold medal and lead the Y4 boys team to victory.
In the Year 5 girls race Sophie finished in a respectable 10th position with Mikah in 12th. Lola and Erin were very last minute stand-ins, only finding out they were competing on the morning. In the year 5 race Kyle showed total control while leading from the front to take the gold medal with Aden finishing in bronze medal position. This, along with the other excellent finishers, put the Year 5 boys team in 1st position.
In the Year 6 girls race our girls dominated with the best possible team score taking them to 1st place also. Olivia ran with confidence from the front leading the medal rush for St Aloysius with a gold medal. Rachel and Chloe kept changing positions with Chloe finishing in silver medal position and Rachel taking the bronze. In the Year 6 boys race Adam finished in 13th followed by Harvey in 14th.
