Primary Scottish Schools’ Cross Country Championships
Hutchie Cross Country teams had their final competition of the year at the weekend.
The Scottish Schools Cross Country Championships were held in Kirkcaldy on Saturday 27th of April.
The P6 and P7 runners competed over 1800m on a challenging course. The first race of the day was the primary 6 girls race.
Hutchie came 5th in the team competition and it was really positive to see 2 runners in the top 20 out of large field of 123 runners. Edie ran well in 15th place and she was chased well by team mate Aneesa in 16th place.
The highlight of the day was the P6 boys’ team and the runners can add Scottish Schools Cross Country Champions to their list of success this year.
It was a delight to see the boys collect the trophy after training and running so well all year. Ben, Myles, Hamish, Cameron, Murray, Logan and Struan made up the team.
This was a competitive race with 136 entries. Finishing in the top 20 were; Ben (10th), Myles (16th) and Hamish (17th). The primary 7 girls put in a good effort around the course.
The primary 7 boys placed 5th. Lewis led his team and secured a top 20 finish (17th ) out of 116 runners.
Well done to all runners at the event.
