Girls Celebrate Cross Country Double
Thursday, 17 March 2016
A successful afternoon running as two Bolton School Junior Girls’ teams both won their age category events at the Bolton Primary Schools’ Cross Country Championship held at Moss Bank Park on a glorious Thursday evening in Bolton.
The course was altered from the fun run the previous week and proved to be a tough and hilly challenge. The Year 3 and 4 girls ran first and with a fantastic team performance they were crowned overall winners, with the top 4 runners accumulating a total score of 26; Pip Nuttall was 1st, Charlotte Harris was 4th, Amelia Cowin came in 8th and Molly Grimshaw achieved 13thposition.
On the night, the Year 5 and 6 girls completed the same course, but covering 2 laps. Not to be outdone by the younger pupils, the Year 5 and 6 team also gave fantastic performances, finishing the event in 1st place with the top 4 runners gaining a total score of 41; Anna Wiggetts was 6th, Porscha Johnson 9th, Isabella Grainger 10th and Caitlin Nuttall 16th.
The Year 5 and 6 Cross Country team have outdone themselves for the third time in four years, with some outstanding individual and team performances. We are very pleased to announce that they are winners of both the Bolton Primary Schools' Cross Country League and Championship. Well done girls for winning THE DOUBLE!
Anna Wiggetts, Porscha Johnson and Isabella Grainger, who after finishing in the top 10, were invited to represent Bolton at Heaton Park at the Greater Manchester Championships.
