Students from Landulph Primary school joined Year 7 and Year 9 from saltash.net for a morning of Cross Country competitions on Monday 19th October. Organised by the PE department at saltash.net, assisted by the excellent Sports’ Leaders, the competition saw inter tutor group challenges as well as individual winners.

Leading the way for Year 7 girls were: Maisie Godfrey in 1st place, Abby Shapland in 2nd place and Katie Flanagan in 3rd place, whilst for the boys, Henry Curtis came in first, with Seth Maunder second and Leighton Poolman third. Impressively, Charlie Bennett from Landulph school’s Year 5 class, came 6th out of the 116 boy competitors.

For the year 9s, results were: Jade Parker in 1st place, Lily Davies in 2nd place and Erin Hannay in 3rd place, whilst for the boys, Henry Bunning came in first with Scott Gregory second and Rhen Debeuc third.

The overall tutor team winners were 7GR and 9TD.

Speaking at the end of the competition, Mr Hawkins, Head of PE, said, ‘Cross country is one of those events that people always remember from their school days. Today’s competition was no exception. Saltash students and our future students from Landulph did amazingly well, pushing themselves, competing and supporting each other. The amount of smiling faces that crossed the finish line at the end of the race, was great to see and confirmed that memories of this cross country would be largely positive … I hope! Well done to all those who ran and a special thanks to our Year 10 sports leaders who marshalled the course and supported the runners along the way.’
