YEAR 6 GIRLS RELIVE LAST YEAR’S CROSS COUNTRY TRIUMPH
There was a distinct sense of deja vu at the Level 2 Cross Country qualifier event. In almost an exact repeat of last year's race St. Andrew's Year 6 girls displayed complete dominance by claiming 1st (Mia), 2nd (Rosy), 3rd (Millie) and 6th (India). Not to be outdone our Year 4 boys' team, who were 2014 county finalists, showed their sporting credentials by taking 5 out of the top 7 positions, including 1st (Oliver) and 3rd (Jacob). There was a double gold celebration for brothers Zac and Seb. Narrowly beaten last year, Eleanor came back more determined than ever and this time won her race with a majestic sprint down the home straight. Determination was also the order of the day for Jack and Katie as they both battled hard for their 3rd places. A wonderful afternoon of athletic success and sportsmanship means that 38 children will qualify to represent St. Andrew's at the Level 2 Cross Country Finals at Notley Discovery Centre on Wednesday, 11th March.
