Hill House Storm Ahead in Doncaster Primary Schools Cross Country Championships
Update: Confirmation from Active Fusion that the Y4 Girls should have won the cross country, which means that Hill House won every age group.
Junior pupils from Hill House spent a fantastic day at the Keepmoat Stadium where they were competing in Active Fusion's Doncaster Primary Schools Cross Country Championships.
The results are still being finalised but there were some outstanding performances.
All the Year 4 girls finished in the top 20, with Greta Highfield 3rd. All Year 4 boys, headed home by Daniel Reeve in first place, finished in the top 10.
The Year 5/6 girls, led by Olivia Lennard, took the first three positions. Erin Yates ran a superb first cross country race to finish 15th and surely secure the girls the team prize. Lysander Lawson ran an excellent race to finish 3rd in the Year 5/6 boys race, followed by Ben Drohan in 9th.
A special mention must go to William Payne who finished the Year 5/6 boys race in a very credible 14th place with a badly cut leg.
'The children have thoroughly enjoyed running today and it is exciting to have so much talent throughout the school. Our thanks to Active Fusion for organising and to Doncaster Athletics Club for setting up the course. The pupils supported each other so well as a team and I am sure they are looking forward to their next race,' said Mr Lawrie, Cross Country and Athletics Coordinator.
