WASP Cross Country 28th September 2018

WASP Cross Country

On Friday 28th September 2018, children from years 3,4,5 and 6 represented our school at the annual WASP’s Cross Country event at Wantage Park.

The afternoon was made up of 4 races; year 3/4 girls, 3/4 boys, 5/6 girls and 5/6 boys. Wantage was represented by an A, B and C team in each race. This year the course was made longer with the year 3/4 children running 1400m and the year 5/6 children running 2km (two laps of Wantage park!)

The children all ran brilliantly and managed the new distance well, pacing themselves and encouraging each other around the course.

The year 3/4 girls saw Rose, Annabel and Annie finish in the top 10 which put the team into joint first place.

The year 3/4 boys team finished in 3rd place with Joshua in 12th and Albie in 17th.

The year 5/6 girls was led by Poppy and Evie finishing in 1st and 2nd place respectively closely followed by their team mates. Wantage manage to have 8 of the top 20 runners!

The year 5/6 boys also had some great results with Zachary finishing in 10th place leading the Wantage boys home.

We wish the Year 3/4 girls and boys and the Year 5/6 girls the best of luck at the Vale Final on Wednesday 10th October 2018.
