Growth with Progress
A team of our year 6 children went to compete in the Hadleigh Pyramid Year 6 Cross Country Run on Monday 14th November.
The boys set off first with a gruelling 2.5k course ahead of them, but set a fantastic pace maintaining their positions all the way round.
It came to a one on one sprint finish at the end with Alex striding into 3rd place, Ollie also had a sprint finish with 2 boys on his tail, but held onto 5th position and Deacon seemed to only get faster as the course went on, coming in 13th place.
The points were added up and with only a margin of 1 point, Elmsett boys came in 2nd place with Hadleigh Community in 1st. Fantastic result boys!
Next up was the girls and Melissa, Lucy and Iona immediately took quite a substantial lead from the start which only stretched out as the race went on making it a comfortable 1st place for Melissa, 2nd for Lucy and 3rd for Iona. This meant that Elmsett won the girls race overall which is amazing!
The children all put in an absolutely brilliant effort and the hard work really paid off - we won't be resting on our laurels though - back in training tomorrow -hooray! (We love it!)
