Stanley Cross Country Success! 

Another week of fantastic Cross country results were achieved on the last day of term in the humidity at Stanley High School!

Years 4, 5 and 6 proudly represented Churchtown on the hottest day of the year, displaying skills of motivation, resilience, determination and achievement with a desire for more success since the ‘Victoria Park’ event.

An excitable set of parents supported the 32 children as they battled, in the heat, to complete the 1000m  (Year 4) and 1500m (Years 5 and 6).

This time Year 4’s, Sophie Pilkington claimed second place in the entire race of over 60 children with Keeley Leach and Katie Eshelby coming 11th and 18th overall. A terrific result for the Year 4 girls!

Year 4 boys showed determination with Lewis Buckley claiming 24th, followed closely by Jack Partington in at 30th place and later Zachary Bentham at 45th. Again, out of 60 plus competitors, this was a fantastic result.

The year 5’s ran in true, rehearsed style again with an incredible result from Thomas Walsh who was determined to beat the Cross country trained competitor, claiming an amazing third place overall achieving a new personal best! Well done Tom! Luke Golding followed in 41st place; second year 5 boy for Churchtown with Charlie Fairweather smashing 45th place with pride. The heat wasn’t preventing these determined young boys!

For Year 5 girls Chloe Gibb claimed 1st for Churchtown coming 15th overall, with Charlotte Cooper in 24th place and a close 25th place for Jessica Harrison out of 60 competitors. Well done girls for withstanding the heat!

Year 6 boys claimed 32nd, 53rd and 60th places from Thomas Eshelby, Ben Porter and Dylan Fair respectively with the year 6 girls completing the race in fine style. Sukey Hogan claimed 8th place, Annabel Harrison in 23rd and Beth Fenny 48th out of over 60 competitors.

Well done also to Bailey Clough, William Jones, Joel Thompson, Chloe Gibb, Naomi Jones, Imogen Kerr, Jasmine Currie, Ella Ritchie, Russell Collis, Scott Kirby, Erin Sammin, Kaan Uslu and Charlotte Eaglestone. All competitors wowed myself, Mrs. Barnes, Mrs Partington and Mrs. Pursall who supported the children at the event on what was a very proud evening.
