We have had another amazing year with our XC meets.
We ran the Meadows XC and then went on to run the InverLeith XC meet and then finally finishing with the Scottish XC Championships at Kirkcaldy in April 2018.
We had some fantastic scores with Innes winning the P6 boys competition at InverLeith and then at Kirkcaldy in a time of 5.55 out of a 146. The P6 boys came overall 3rd out of 20 teams at Kirkcaldy. Fraser came in 16th at InverLeith and 38th at Kirkcaldy. The rest were well above the 100 mark. Fantastic !
Georgina from the P6 girls came in 21st at InverLeith and was 49 out of 152 girls at Kirkcaldy. This is the first time they have competed so they did amazingly as the team overall came in 13th out of 21 teams.
Ishbel came in 6th at InverLeith and 18th out of 120 girls in the Kirkcaldy P7 girls competition. Freya came in 10th at InverLeith and 33rd at Kirkcaldy and the rest were so good that we cam 5th overall out of 14 teams.
Campbell came 18th at InverLeith and 30th out of 126 boys at Kirkcaldy and all the boys were good enough to come 12th as a team overall.
There were a wide range of schools from Dornoch in Sutherland to schools in the Borders. The pleasure I have in our wins and great placings is that we have to practise on is the Links at Bruntsfield and wait ….there we are, up with the best of the private schools with no private facilities. That is why I am very proud of all of them!
I came, I saw, I conquered – Julius Caesar – and they all did.
Thank you to all the parents who came to support us and to my ever faithful helpers
thank you so much for all the help over the many years we have been doing this.
and now on to next year ………
