CROSS COUNTRY SUCCESSS FOR ALL AND OBS BOYS TEAM ARE CHAMPIONS OF NOTTINGHAM!
What a day! This afternoon 16 of our 'super fit' OBS pupils represented school at the Nottingham City Finals for Cross Country. Each of them had to run 1.7km across a very hilly and muddy Wollaton Hall.
The girls and boys teams had to compete separately, with the girls setting off first! Out of the 160 girls entered, all 6 of our girls finished in the TOP 50! With 2 of them finishing in the top 20! WOW!
Next it was the boys turn.... all 10 OBS boys competed against over 180 other pupils. Christian finished in 2nd place, Alijah in 5th and Harvey finished in 10th! This means all 3 of these boys have been selected to represent Nottingham City at the East Midlands regional finals for Cross Country on Saturday 1st February! AN OUTSTANDING ACHIEVEMENT!
Another 2 of our boys Rio and Jacob finished in the top 20 boys! And every member of the boys team finished within the TOP 50!
To top it all off … the boys team as a collectively finished with the fastest team time of the day and therefore were announced as The Boys Team Cross Country Champions for Nottingham City.
Well done to Jailah, Maria, Libbie, Precious, Skyla and Kara! Deacon, François, Ryan, Layton, Rio, Harvey, Alijah, Jacob, Caleb and Christian!
