On Thursday 8th March we fielded a 50 strong team to compete in the South Northants and Daventry Cross Country Competition. It took place at Daventry Sports Park and it was cold, wet and muddy, but this did not dampen the children’s spirts who were all very excited.
There were a total of eight competitive races and the children were very patient waiting for their opportunity to run. In all the children were very well behaved throughout the whole afternoon, representing our school wonderfully well. They were fantastic at supporting their team mates and cheering the other competitors along.
All of our children ran fantastically well and managed to complete their races. We had a few of our runners just
finish outside of the medal places. However, with the great consistency of our runners managing to place so well, we managed to finish 2nd overall in the team event. There were a total of seventeen other schools taking part, so this is a truly brilliant team performance.
Well done to all of runners who never gave up and did their part for the team. Superb badgers!
A big thank to all of the parents who kept encouraging all of our runners and helping out. Thank you! Mr Brazier
