U11’s and U9's Mixed Cross Country At Twycross House

On a very wet, muddy and notoriously hilly course, all ten of our athletes ran a hard fought race against very stiff opposition. Katherine and Evie excelled for the girls, finishing 10th and 11th respectively in a packed field of over 50 runners.

Sophia, Steph and Sophie were not far behind, all contributing valuable points to the team score. For the boys, Sam McCormick ran an excellent race finishing in 15th, with Kai just behind him in 16th. Rohan, Sachin and Caspar all also ran strong races, finishing with good times despite the conditions.

A huge well done to all of our super runners!

We had some great performances at Twycross House School in the U9 Cross Country Team Event. There were some fantastic individual performances too with Roisin B and Roisin C finishing in the top 10 places of over 50 runners per race. 
All of the pupils had a great time with our wonderful smiles whilst running being commented on by staff from other schools.

Rugby and District Cross Country

The final Rugby and District Qualifying race took place on Wednesday 2 March at The Revel School, Monks Kirby.  The wet weather had made even getting to the course tricky but the team of Year 5 and Year 6 runners did not let the cold wind, rain or mud dampen their spirits.  An uphill start and undulating ground made it the most challenging of courses so far with all students showing great grit, determination and resilience completing the course with fantastic competitive spirit. 

Great runs from all students again with Evie finishing within the top 10 with Katherine, Grace C and Ellie close behind.  We are still awaiting the final results and hearing who has been selected for the Rugby and District team for the County Championships on the Saturday 12 March.  

Well done to all runners who have taken part in the Rugby and District Cross Country runs, Rohan, Kai, Caspar, Aryan, Faris, Sachin, Sam, Charlie, Alex and Finlay, Evie, Eva, Liana Sophia, Sophie, Stephanie, Chloe, Harriet, Ellie, Grace, Lara, Bella and Poppy.
