Year 5 Cross Country Blackwater Finals

Due to a fantastic performance in the local cross country competition, our year 5 team got through to the Colchester Blackwater Finals. This took place on Wednesday 2nd March at Colchester Rugby Club. The team consisted of 5 girls and 6 boys. There was lots of people there, participants and supporters, which is lovely to see, especially considering the weather was awfully unpleasant.

The Wentworth girls’ team came 2nd and overall Wentworth came 8th out of 21 schools. This is an amazing achievement as they competed against over 100 other runners and all performed extremely well.

A special mention to one of our year 5 girls, who came 3rd in her race and won the bronze medal! She ran exceptionally well and put every effort in. She will be competing in the Essex individual races in April.

A big well done to everyone who was involved and for family who came to support.
