Inter-House Cross Country Report 2014 (years 4-8)

15 Oct 2014

This year’s first Inter-house event was cross-country with every pupil from years 4 to 8 participating. Each pupil successfully finished each race and earned their house valuable points.

The year 4 boy’s race saw Josh Clarke run a superb race to come first with Louis Batty and Charlie Rymer close behind. In the year 4 girl’s race, Gigi Granger ran with real grit and determination, scoring full points for Tate. Next up were the year 5s: Oliver Allport won the boy’s race and Bonnie Harris won the girl’s in tremendous style, finishing incredibly strongly and winning by 22 seconds. In the year 6 races, Ewan Rodell comfortably won the boys event by almost a minute, an outstanding effort and in the girl’s race, Alice Farmer blew her opponents away with a superb run. The year 7 races proved very eventful with Rory Rodell and Joseph Fox battling hard to win the boys race. Rory just beat Joseph to the finish line to earn Lyons some valuable house points. The girl’s race was dominated by Anya Batty who put in a sterling performance, leading from start to finish. The final races of the week were the year 8 boys and girls. The year 8 boy’s race was dominated by Leo Cox and the girl’s race was won by Felicity Bridges-Webb. Both pupils were members of Tate and greatly assisted Tate’s cause: overall, Tate won the Inter-house Cross Country competition for 2014. All the pupils should be extremely proud of the way they performed and supported each other throughout the week. Well done indeed!
