Old Town win HX7 XC League for second year!
OLD TOWN ARE ‘RUNAWAY WINNERS’ of the HX7 Cross Country League – 2019 / 2020 and have successfully defended their title from last season.
At every XC League event there have been a host of competitors from Old Town – more than any other school! We have had teams in every age group, with a new team of Year 6 girls (Boe, Danni, Izumi, Lorna, Karis & Evie-May) who deserve special mention as they won 8 of our total of 38 league points. Well done girls! Overall, we gained 38 league points, a long way ahead of second placed Burnley Road with 12 points.
With strong teams in each year group, it was no surprise that we had a lot of teams (and individuals) who qualified for the Calderdale Finals in Halifax on Wednesday, 15th January. The following children qualified & competed brilliantly:
Year 3 individuals: Rowan, George, Holly & Meg
Year 4 individuals: Ethan, Raffi & Torsten
Year 4 girls’ team: Pip, Mal, Adriana, Eliza & Violet
Year 5 individuals: Meadow
Year 5 boys’ team: Felix, Noah, Alfie H & Donovan
Year 6 boys’ team: Owen, Henry, Eric & Robert
21 children competing in the Calderdale Final – what a wonderful achievement!
THE NEXT PHASE IS THE WEST YORKSHIRE XC FINALS & THE CHILDREN – HIGHLIGHTED IN GREEN – HAVE ALL QUALIFIED TO COMPETE AT TEMPLE NEWSAM, LEEDS ON 4TH MARCH, 2020. WE WISH THEM ALL THE BEST OF LUCK.
Torsten (year 4), Noah (year 5) & Henry (year 6) have all qualified as individuals. The year 4 girls qualified as the 5th team too. Sadly, although the year 5 & year 6 boys scored enough points to possibly qualify (in 3rd & 4th place respectively), we needed to have had a team of 5 for the score of ‘first four past the post’ to count. We were left feeling frustrated & unlucky – but we’ll know for next year!
Congratulations to every child from Old Town who competed, even if it was for just one or two of the events. Everyone made a contribution to our amazing team effort.
Thank you from Mrs Vile to all the parents who attended the various events, helped out and cheered us on. You are FANTASTIC.
