Mr Nixon, sent the following report about the Cross Country yesterday.
Twenty four children from P2-P7 represented the school at this year’s McRobert Cup Cross Country held at the Bught Park, Inverness on Wednesday 23rd March. With 43 schools and over 900 runners the event is the biggest Primary School athletics event in Scotland.
All the children put in their best and should be proud of their achievements and the manner in which they behaved throughout the event. There were a number of individual and team prizes secured by the school;
McRobert Cup Winners – The p6/7 Girls Team won the McRobert Cup for their age group with excellent performances from Mairaid Ball, Katherine Brown, Amy Weir, Rhona MacKinnon, Julia Ferguson and Charlotte Douglas.
McRobert Cup Runners Up – The p4/5 boys team of Calum Macleod, Ross Macleod, Alistair Nixon, Nicki Taylor, Calum Watson and Sam Thomson were tied in first place with Inshes but on the count back Lochardil were awarded the Silver Medal.
Individual Medallists – Michael Miller had a great run to finish 3rd in the P2/3 boys race, Calum Macleod was 4th and Ross Macleod 5th in the P4/5s, Robbie Thomson was 5th in the P6/7 boys, Charlotte Douglas was 4th and Mairaid Ball was 5th in the P6/7 girls race.
Congratulations to everyone who took part and to everyone who has taken part in the Cross Country training over the past 8 weeks.
A big thank you to the parent helpers who have helped out at the training sessions and to those who volunteered on the day to make the event such a success.
Many thanks to Mr Nixon for training the team and taking them to this event, we appreciate all that you do!
