Some great performances from our runners at the first fixture.
In the Year 8/9 girls race we had 5 athletes running. Annie Naylor (Y8) made a big breakthrough and stormed away with victory. This didn’t surprise me one bit the way she has been training. Polly Platts (Y8) has also been working really hard with Annie in training and this proved with a big improvement from last year finishing in 5th place. Maggie Naylor (Y9) going through a bit of a bad patch at the moment but will be back to her best soon finished in 9th place. Katie Smith (Y8) finished in 21st and Erin Flannery (Y8) finished in 31st.
There was also another breakthrough for George Bellamy (Y9) in the Year 8/9 Boys race. George has been working really hard on his endurance this past few months and it showed here with a 2nd place finish. A big improvement from last year. Keep working hard George and maybe you will book your place on the coach to the English Schools.
