Girls excel at AJIS Cross Country Championships

Wednesday 28th September the Year 5 and 6 cross country teams travelled up to Rossall School to compete in the annual AJIS Cross Country Championships. The girls were up for it and we had high hopes for our teams. With 20 schools in each age group there was a lot of strong competition. This was the year 5’s had an opportunity to compete in the AJIS events and therefore this was exciting for them. They performed well and already have their sites on gold for next year. They finished a promising 10th in the team competition and a fantastic performance from Olivia Williams who has only just joined the school this year. In the Year 6 team we knew that we had a great team, with Grace Barr winning the race as a year 5 last year. The team were focussed and only wanted the gold. The team performed magnificently with 4 out of the 6 girls finishing in the top 20. Grace finished 1st for the second year running, a massive achievement! Well done to all the girls and they should be proud of all the hard work they have put into achieving this.
