At the beginning of November, the Winton cross country team attended their second league event of the year at Sir David English. 33 children from Year 4, 5 and 6 confidently took to the start line to complete the 1 mile course. After the first event both the Year 5 and Year 6 teams were sitting in 2nd place overall, and with a slight incline towards the finish line it really was going to be a test of endurance for the runners in their sprint finishes.
There were 15 schools in attendance at the event and over 100 runners in each race, the top finishers in the second race were:
Year 5 cross country event 2:
Year 6 cross country event 2:
We have had a nervous wait for a few weeks while the scores for each runner were added up into individual league positions and overall positions to find out where we have placed. In the individual cross country league runners must have raced in both events and their finishing position was totalled together to give runners a position on the table.
Individual cross country runners league results
Year 5 boys league (both race scores combined)
Year 5 girls league (both race scores combined)
Year 6 boys league (both race scores combined)
Year 6 girls league (both race scores combined)
As a school we finished in 2nd position for the team results in both the Year 5 league and the Year 6 league which is an incredible achievement and a testament to the hard work and dedication of every single child that represented Winton at cross country this year.
