Roots to grow, wings to fly

Further Cross Country Success!

Pupils take part in the Gloucestershire County Primary School Cross Country Championship

Following on from Alexander Hosea School’s recent success at the local Wotton and District Primary School cross country races, three year 6 children, Maia Parmar, Luke Shrewsbury and Adam Shrewsbury were selected to represent the 10 strong Wotton and Dursley District team in the Gloucestershire County Primary School Cross Country Championship.  

The Championship, at Newent Community School North West of Gloucester, brought together the top cross country runners (110 boys and 95 girls) from the 8 districts across the County.  In the boys’ race, Luke and Adam got off to a great start and maintained their form throughout the race to come in 11th and 12th respectively.  Whilst in the girls’ race, despite a slow start Maia continually picked off the opposition to eventually finish a very impressive 13th.  

Whilst the 3 individual performances were excellent, their contribution to the overall team performances was significant and resulted in the Wotton and Dursley District boys’ team coming in 2nd overall and the girls’ team winning the County Championship. 

Congratulations to Maia, Luke and Adam, they can be justifiably proud of their performance.
