Cross Country success

Saturday 5th February was the Lancashire Schools Cross Country and Park pupils have excelled once again.

Last weekend was the Lancashire Schools Cross Country with a good contingent of Park pupils running for Pendle.  The weather was atrocious but that did not stop our pupils turning in excellent performances.

The headlines go to the older pupils as both William Walker (Inter Boys) and Isabel Holt (Inter Girls) turned in brilliant performances to win their races and become County Champions.  In the Inter Girls race a Park pupil also took second place with Eve Hartley running fantastically.

In the other races there were some brilliant individual and team results.  In previous years whilst the Pendle team has had some excellent runners they have not done as well in the team events.  However, this year the Year 7 Girls team finished as runners-up with Lottie Hesketh (6th), Jessica Oldham (22nd),  Maisie Warren-Beck (39th), Phoebe Law (40th), Hannah Beebe (42nd) and  Imogen Taylor (47th) all contributing to the team.

In the Inter Girls event the team finished in 3rd with Isabel and Eve the top 2 which was supported by Gemma Kenniford (23rd) and Tilly Hird (58th).

Other pupils to represent Pendle brilliantly on the day were Jack McFadyen (56th in the Year 7 boys) , Ruby Terry (48th in the Junior Girls) Charlie Reeder (31st), Max Belshaw (41st) and Callum Singleton (43rd) in the Junior Boys and Ben Stratton 19th in the Inter boys.

There was also a success in the Senior Girls race with former pupil Abbie Stratton winning the race to become County Champion.

A huge well done to all the pupils involved.
