Weekend Cross Country Success

Year 6 pupil, Florence L, has had a great start to the year, managing to win not one, but two, cross country events held over the same weekend.

Taking part in the Humber Athletics Association Cross Country race in Hull, Florence tackled a 2 kilometre up and downhill course, competing against 40 other runners to be the first girl and fourth overall in the U11s. In rather boggy conditions, Florence remained undeterred despite taking a tumble and even witnessed another competitor running with only one shoe after losing the other in all the mud!

The next day saw Florence enter the Lincolnshire Athletics Cross Country at Biscathorpe and, despite it being a particularly hard course, she took the lead by some margin to take overall first place.

Well done to Florence!
