Years 7&8 cross country running


Ten runners from Years 7 and 8 braved the wettest day of September to take part in a cross country race at Millfield.  This included first time appearances in the Hugh Sexey cross country team by Hattie and Vin in Year 7 and Josh and Michael in Year 8.


To add to their challenge, they had a shallow pond to run through on each of the three laps.


Our first runner home, and fourth overall, was Fynn; more than making up for having to pull up last time following a mid-race collision.  


Credit to all our runners for their positivity in conditions that would have literally dampened most spirits, for their encouragement to each other and for completing a tough race.
