What a wonderful afternoon it has been today!
Not only has it been a marvellously, sunny October day but our year 5 and 6 cross country runners have been marvellous too!
11 children pulled on their Berry Hill t-shirts to represent our school at Manor Complex to take part in a 1700 metre race. The girls took to the start line first and set off into the distance. They were absolutely brilliant and all of them finished in the top 20 out of 46 competitors! One of our girls won the whole event, finishing 1st and qualifying for the finals of the cross country county championships in February.
Next up were the boys…they were keen to get started and set off at a fast pace. Within a short amount of time though, a red Berry Hill t-shirt came into view, way out in the lead, jogging across the finish line in 1st position! Closely followed by another Berry Hill runner in 3rd! Both boys gaining their spot in the finals of the cross country county championships in February too. The rest of the boys team came back in steady intervals out of the 57 competing boys.
We were so proud of all of the Berry Hill girls and boys who were amazing today. It was hard work and tiring just watching you all! Well done everyone!
