The Granville U9 and U11 cross country teams competed on the tough course at Somerhill on Thursday, against approximately 15 schools from the Southeast region, and for the second year in a row our runners have brought a trophy home to the Granville.
The U11 team of four Year 6’s and four Year 5’s worked brilliantly together over 2000m. There was upwards of a hundred competitors and games captain Maddie W. led by example to achieve an excellent 2nd place. She was rewarded with an individual silver medal. Annabelle and Telia raced one another into 11th and 12th positions, with Kara and Grace coming in 21st and 29th. The best six places scored and Venetia just pipped Eleanor into 43rd with her 42nd position, giving us a winning total of 117. Maddy G. ably completed our victorious team.
Not to be outdone the U9 team including six Year 4’s and Amie in Year 3, also ran very well over a distance of 1750m. Scorers Pip came 11th, Cara 15th, Belle 27th, Lucy 43rd, Isabelle 52nd and Amie 59th, with Freya also finishing strongly, giving us a score of 207. This earned the team a very creditable 3rd place.
Wonderful results girls, we are very proud of you.
