Pupils from 12 different schools, from as far afield as Abbotsholme in Derbyshire and St George’s in Boston, joined us today for our annual Highfields Cross Country Meet held here in our own grounds. Running distances of between 1.2km and 1.8km each school fielded a team of U9 girls, U9 boys, U11 girls and U11 boys. The pace was set by our “celebrity” hares Blue Hayward and her sister Bo, national cross country champions and international athletes.
Highfields achieved some superb results with a FIRST in the u9 boys’ race and 6th place in the U9 girls’ race! Congratulations go to Lowes Wong who scooped both the girls’ and the boys’ U9 races, Lincoln Minster who won the girls’ U11 and Salterford House for the U11 boys’ race.
Very well done to everyone who took part, from all schools, and a very special thank you to our Head of Boys’ Games, Mr Lewis and Head of Girls’ Games, Mrs Turner. You can view more pictures of this event our Facebook page.
