Grass track cycling finals
Congratulations to our brilliant grass track cycling teams, who recently competed in the county finals.
In February 2019, we hosted the qualifying grass track cycling event for the Truro area. A record ten schools attended, each bringing teams of children from Years 5 and 6. We were delighted to win this event – and qualify (alongside Mount Hawke School) to represent the Peninsula area at the Cornwall School Games.
On Thursday 28th March 2019, both of our teams raced at Newquay Sports Centre. The format is team pursuit, with races consisting of 6 laps of four riders – overall positions were based on the lowest combined times for each school.
Our Year 5 team: Kayo, Beth, George and Joe, and our Year 6 team: Isaac, Freddie, Jasmine and Dexter, raced extremely well. They showed impressive teamwork – staying close together and changing over the front rider each lap. They fully deserve their bronze medal, for finishing 3rd in Cornwall.
Congratulations to both St. Breock School and Charlestown School for taking the top two places.
Thank you to Mr Speer and Mr Lee for taking the teams to this event.
