KS2 Cross Country – Wavertree 30th March 2016

The final cross country league fixture took place at Wavertree last night. With a lot of schools off for Easter, it gave our pupils the chance to move up the field and improve their league placings.

Newcomers Poppy and Dylan fared well for their first time in a cross country event, with Poppy outperforming all but Alexis of the girl’s team. Eryk finished off a strong year with a top ten finish, one which he deserves after being a consistent top twenty performer. Lucas continued his improved placings, with his first top ten finish and Sean recorded his highest position after six events. Alexis continued her dominance in the girls team, by finishing as OLI’s first girl once again, followed closely by Poppy and Akasha. Slightly further down the field were determined runners Holly and Eve, both still recovering from their swimming heroics on Monday!

The final standings for the season will be updated here when available, but our results from the race are below. This is the first year that we have taken part in cross country competitions and it has unearthed some exciting talent and a love of running in our pupils. Thank you to all the parents who have supported over the year and to the members of staff giving up their time for some long evenings! The cross country after school club will begin after Easter and it is hoped that the uptake will be very high! Along with the continuation of the daily mile, we aim to gain more of our pupils’ interest in running and sporting activities in general.
