A great first Cross Country meet for Bramcote Junior School on Thursday 28 January at St Martin's Ampleforth.
In wet, muddy conditions the U9 team competed with six other schools in a fiercely competitive run over two miles. There was a great team effort from all our runners but special mention must go to to Freddie Halliwell who came 6th, Mark Nichols who came 9th and to Lucy and Kate Barker who came 2nd and 3rd respectively, in their race.
It was also very pleasing to see the commitment of the Marcroft boys who, despite having an indoor athletics competition later in the day, volunteered to run in the U11 race. It was a good decision as they both ran fantastically with Harry coming 5th and Jack 6th. Thanks also to their Grandparents who rushed them back to Scarborough for their second sporting event of the day!
