Wins for prep pupils at cross country race

Saturday 14th March

Best primary school: Polwhele House cross country event

As usual, this brilliant cross-country event attracted children from a number of local primary and secondary schools.

Our entry of over 40 runners did exceptionally well in their races, with a number of children finishing in the top three in their races. Congratulations to James H (1st Y3/4 boy), Elliot (3rd Y3/4 boy), Sanna (3rd Year 3/4 girl) and Lucy (2nd Year 5/6 girl).

During the presentation, we were also delighted to be awarded with the shield for ‘best primary school.’ This was worked out by totalling the best 6 scores for each school across all Year 3/4 and Year 5/6 races.

It was also great to see Truro School win ‘best secondary school’ – several of their runners are already high-performance runners, competing within clubs and at county level.

Year 3 and 4

Squad: Arthur, James, Sunny, Nathaniel, Rufus, Reuben, Harry, Elliot, William, Bruce, Nancy, Evelyn, Daisy, Millie and Sanna.

Top 15 finishes from James (1st), Elliot (3rd), William (4th), Sunny (14th), Reuben (15th), Sanna (3rd) and Millie (15th). A great result for Elliot – who still has another year in this age group.

Well done to everyone who competed in this age group- some for their first time – as the lower woodland section course was extremely muddy.

Year 5 and 6

Squad: Felix, Jack H, Jack C, Trystan, Christian, William, Jacob, Oscar, Maddox, Charlie, Hector, Roman, Lucy, Flo, Jemima, Evie, Clara, Lilly, Beth, Ayesha, Annabel, Alice, Felicity, Farrah, Tilly-Rose and Imogen.

Top 15 finishes from Jacob (7th), Felix B (9th), Oscar (14th), Lucy (2nd), Lilly (12th) and Beth (15th).

Well done to everyone who raced – in particular our Year 5 runners – as they have another year in this age group. The course was extremely challenging, as the wet weather meant the course was slippery on the fast descent down to the lower section of the woodland, and gruelling on the steep climb up ‘garlic hill.’
