Yesterday 31 pupils from KS2 competed at Temple Park Leisure Centre in the South Tyneside Cross Country Finals.
Each child completed in their respective year group events, comprising of between 40 and 70 children from various schools in the borough.
All of our children, performed very well, working hard and demonstrating great determination right until the finishing line of their respective races.
Outstanding performers were:
Bobby (Y6) ran a great race to silver – he worked hard and showed his wonderful all around ability once again.
Lucas (Y4) led from the front and was never headed throughout for a very decisive victory racing to gold.
Ryan (Y3) such a great finish, tussling with the silver medalist, but pushing himself to gold in the final 100m. Such fabulous potential for the future!
Ava (Y3) following in her brothers footsteps she was never headed, leading from the front throughout for a clear gold medal winning run!
Other Top 10 finishers included:
Harry (Y6) 6th, Yanna (Y3) 7th, Lacey (Y5) 5th & Lee-Jay (Y4) 10th.
The Y3 Girls were also team winners of their age category which is fantastic for them as it was, for some of them, their first competition representing Stanhope.
I am so proud of all of you. Every mile counts…
