Cross CountryPosted on: 22/11/2017
On Wednesday 22 November, 32 Barton Court students travelled to Kent College for the district cross-country event. There were some strong performances from individual students in their race which means some of these students will go on to represent the district at the county event.
In the Year 7 boys and girls race, Barton Court entered 12 students with all of these finishing in the top 50 for their race. For the girls, a very good run by Jessica saw her finish 17th, with Alex coming 8th in the boys category.
In the junior boys and girls race, a number of Year 8 students were entered and performed exceptionally well against students a year older. Special mention must go to Felix (8th), Daniel (13th), Stanley (22nd) and Will (23rd) in the boys race, whilst Ursula (22nd) and Georgina (26th) had good runs in the girls category.
There were fewer runners for the older category, however, Elliot finished 9th in the Inter-boys competition with Lee-James not far behind in 16th.
It was in the senior boys and girls races where Barton Court collected their medals. Rosanna had a very strong run to comfortably win the girls race, whilst Cole finished 3rd in the boys race.
Overall, it was a very successful day for a number of students and we hope they are looking forward to future cross-country events.
