On Friday 14th October, Highnam C of E Primary Academy took part in the cluster cross country race held at Newent School. On a beautiful afternoon a team of fourteen took part in four different races. There was a girls and boys year 3/4 race and a girls and boys year 5/6 race.
In the girls' year 3/4 race Kelsey stormed to the front and stayed there for the whole race, she was followed home by Hannah H finishing 4th, Helen 10th, Isobel 11th, Erin 16th and Chloe-Mae 17th . In the boys' year 3/4 race Konrad finished 6th, Byron 18th, Jamie-Ray 20th and Harry R 46th.
In the girls' year 5/6 race Charlotte finished 7th, Abigail finished 9th and Emily 12th. The final race was the boys' year 5/6 race and Adam finished 1st, Matthew B 9th, Haydn 13th, Cameron 14th, Harry E 17th, Alex G 21st, William 22nd, Christopher 37th, Dan A 40th and Leon 45th. A special mention must go to year 4 pupils Haydn, Cameron and Harry E as they were competing in the year 5/6 selection race and performed extremely well.
The team performed very well and Adam, Matthew, Charlotte and Abigail have been selected to represent Newent in the district race later in the year.
Thank you to all the parents and grandparents who came along to support the team.
