Epping and Ongar Schools District Cross Country

On Wednesday 17 January Coopersale Hall School competed in the Epping and Ongar Schools District Cross Country Races, held at Love Lane playing fields in Ongar.

In the very first race it was fantastic to watch Nia and Francesca lead the race from start to finish.  Gold going to Nia and Silver to Francesca.  In the same race Jessica finished an amazing 7th and was one of the first Year 3’s across the finish line.

In the second race pupils performed brilliantly with Sonny finishing in 7th place, one of the first Year 3’s the finish the race.  His performance was backed up by George who came 10th and Christian who came 15th.

The third race saw the Years 5/6 Girls put on a fine display of distance running, with Darcey recording her best ever position, finishing in 4th. This was backed up by Arwen who took 7th place.

Finally, it was the turn of the Years 5/6 Boys, and in a very fast race it was wonderful to watch Harry finish 4th and Ronnie 7th.  Once again these performances were backed up brilliantly by Ben who took 14th place and Oliver, 18th – both year 5’s.  When all the points had been added Cooperale Hall took second place overall and won the Small Schools Cup for the 4th time in five years!

Mr Robinson would like to thank all of the pupils for their determination and effort.  Also a big thank you to all parents who turned up to cheer the pupils on.
