Cross Country at Salesian - November 2010

On Tuesday 16th November our cross country team, along with five other schools, took part in the Salesian Cross Country Competition in Chertsey. With temperatures hovering not too far above zero and a thick blanket of fog hovering not too far above the ground, it proved to be yet another fantastic sporting day for the school.
Our team of almost 70 children from years 3 to 6, cheered on by fantastic parental support, performed superbly. Cross country is a team event and our sparkling individual performers were ably supported by the other team members ensuring overall success when the results were totalled up.
Once again we were proud of the commitment, team spirit and excellent behaviour of the whole team – well done everyone, you deserve your triumph!

With 4 team wins and 2 second places from 8 races this was a remarkable team effort. We also had some sparkling individual performances with gold to Emma and Jack, silver to Rosie, Keelan, Darby and Ethan and bronze to Jonathan and Michael.
And the team performance of the day? Well, I think it’s a very close call. The Year 6 boys’ team was outstanding and once again stepped up and performed exceptionally on the big occasion – to finish 1st, 2nd and 3rd in this race was brilliant!  However, just edging the Year 6 boys’ for team performance of the day must go to the Year 3 girls. As our youngest team members, everything was new to them but they responded so positively and ran as fast as their legs would carry them. To finish with 5 runners in the top 8 was fantastic and gave them the lowest team total of 23 points. Well done girls – the biggest glory is yours!
