Cross Country: Year 6 girls team winners in the St Austell district
The last meet at Par was as competitive as all the rest; and with Year 6 girls narrowly in 1st place after the first 4 rounds, a strong team effort was needed. It turned into the best performance of the season with Chloe coming in 4th, Ruby in 9th, Jess in 13th and Lizzy in 18th. With Lilyah and Caitlin also running throughout the season they have been a great team supporting each other and thoroughly deserve their victory.
Meanwhile the Year 5 girls missed out on third place by a whisker, with key runners ill for the last meet. Throughout the season Ella has been in the top ten, Ellie(Year 4) has also broken into the top ten and Abbie(Y4) has been a great competitor. Well done to all of those who have persevered through wind, rain and mud. It is the taking part that counts! Year 6 girls: Chloe, Jess, Ruby, Lizzy, Lilyah, Caitlin. Year 6 boys: Harvey, Rodrigo, Dexter, Kevin. Year 5 girls: Ella, Ellie(Y4), Abbie, Keeley, Becky, Iesha, Year 5 boys: Charlie, Finley, William, Kieran, Tobi(Y4), Ethan(Y4), Jake(Y4)
Mid Cornwall Finals
11 of our best runners then went to Newquay for the Mid Cornwall finals. With a much higher standard there were mixed fortunes. Everyone gave the tricky course a fantastic go and with up to 60 children in each race trying to get a top 15 spot, and thus qualify for the Cornwall finals, it was going to be tough. However, 3 of our athletes made it through with great results. In the Year 4 girls Ellie, who front ran it for most of the way, was narrowly beaten into 4th place. In the Year 6 girls Chloe came in a very credit worthy 9th; meanwhile Jess set out quickly, and held on tenaciously to come in 15th and grab the last spot for the County finals.
Year 4 Boys Team: Ethan, Tobi, Jake, Max(Y3). Year 4 Girls Team: Ellie, Abbie, Daisy, Lily(Y3), Kira.
Our 3 qualifying athletes were now representing Mid Cornwall and up against the very best in the county. Ellie in Year 4 was first to run and finished in 13th place with the Mid Cornwall team in 2nd overall. In the Year 6 race Jess came 34th and Chloe 39th with the Mid Cornwall team coming in 1st place. 3 excellent results. And, to give it some real perspective, it wasn’t really out of 60. With all the regional finals and district races before that, this was out of 1000 and more!
On a very cold and wet Thursday, 12 children from MCS went to the tennis tournament. Four year 4 children: Stan, Ethan, Abi and Grace, and eight year 6 children: Rodrigo, Chloe, Kieran, James, Ruby, Gracie, Zakk and Caitlin. They all played amazingly well and one of the year 6 teams was so successful that they are through to the next round. Well done!
