Banbury schools cross country

Banbury school children made an extremely impressive start to this year’s NOSSP competition calendar as 400 of them competed at the Banbury Area Primary School Cross Country event on Saturday 24th September.  The children from 14 schools ran with plenty of determination around the fields at Banbury Academy where a team of Year 7-11 Young Sports Leaders did a fantastic job of helping to run the event. 

There were six races, Yr1/2 girls and boys, Yr3/4 girls and boys and Yr5/6 girls and boys and all were extremely competitive with up to 80 children in each.  Well done to all the children who took part but a special mention goes to Misty (Cropredy), Seb (Cropredy), Julia (St. Leonard’s), Lucas (Hanwell Fields), Eimear (St. Johns) and Stanley (Harriers) who all won their respective races.  The winners of the team competitions were: Yr1/2 girls Hillview; Yr1/2 boys Cropredy; Yr3/4 girls St. Leonard’s; Yr3/4 boys Bishop Loveday; Yr5/6 girls Bishop Loveday; Yr5/6 Harriers.  The overall competition was won by St. Leonards Primary School for the third year running! The top 10 individuals and the top 2 teams in each of the races will go onto the partnership finals at Sibford School in November. Nearly all the schools that entered have children that have qualified for this which is a fantastic result!
