Bronze for Cross-Country

Bronze for Cross-Country

Congratulations to Chirranjeevi Mohan in 3L who picked up a bronze medal at his first inter-schools Cross Country Competition.

The event was held at Queensbury playing fields and attracted entrants from schools from across the region, with nearly 200 year 3 pupils, including those from Lady Royd, taking part.

Most of the 1200 metre course was uphill, with a particularly muddy stretch, making it quite a challenging race. Chirranjeevi really pushed forward, leading the pack for most of the race, but was just piped for first place position in the last few metres.

Miss Dickinson thought all the pupils put in a commendable effort: ‘Every single one of our year 3 pupils pushed themselves, even when they started to feel tired they still never gave up. I am very proud of them all’.
