Cross country at Bishop Walsh 19.09.17

teamOn Tuesday the cross country season kicked off at Bishop Walsh where the first race of the WSAS Cross Country League took place. After a huge number of children trying out last week, a squad of 8 boys and 8 girls was picked. As usual, this coincided with Year 6 being at Howtown but this gave an opportunity for our new Year 5s to show us their talents.

It was a lovely evening and conditions were excellent. Wearing our new school Tshirts and big smiles, our team set off racing around the playing fields at Bishop Walsh. 

The boys ran first then, as they reached the 3/4 point, the girls started. Señora Stevens was torn between shouting encouragement and organising but managed to do both, and the races went well. Every one of our team finished strongly, and those that had finished shouted encouragement at their teammates, some even turning round and cheering when they'd only just finished and were still short of breath. Particularly well done to Jalen, Ben and Joe who finished 10th, 12th and 39th respectively, and Olivia, Mariah and Kirstie who finished 25th 26th and 42nd in their race. 

Señora Stevens was very proud of all of them and was especially pleased by the excellent attitude and good manners they showed to other adults and their fellow competitors. They were excellent ambassadors for Whitehouse Common. Year 6 - you're going to have to work hard to regain your places on the team!
