Over 20 children from Nansloe Academy took part in the first cross country race of the 2017/18 season hosted by Porthleven. Harry, Max, Toby, Poppy and Daisy all finished in the top 10 in their races. The full results can be found below.
After recent poor weather and a number of cancellations the Cross Country League was back underway with the fourth race of the season held at Mullion School. Josh (4th), Harry (6th) and Ethan (9th) were all top 10 finishers in the Year 5/6 boys race. Last year as a school we reached a total of 4259 points. This year we are currently on 3448. Let's see if we can pass that score by getting as many children as possible competing in the final 2 events of the year.
Helston held the penultimate race before the Christmas break where a number of children were taking part in their 3rd race of the year. Tom had his 3rd top 10 finish this year finishing 9th in the Year 3/4 race. Josh also managed his 3rd top 10 finish coming 5th in the Year 5/6 race.
St Michael's School held race 2 for the first time and it turned out to be a tough but enjoyable course. Well done to Tom who finished 4th in the Year 3/4 race and Harry and Josh in the Year 5/6 race who finished 5th and 7th respectively.
Cross Country Returns
The Cross Country League returned for the 2016/17 season at Mullion. As usual Nansloe was well represented with a number of Year 3 children taking part for the first time. Stand out finishers were Tom who finished 6th and Charlie 10th in the Year 3/4 race and Josh (6th) and Harry (10th) in the Year 5/6 race.

Nansloe represented at Peninsula Cross Country Event
Congratulations to Harry and Scarlett who represented Helston at the Peninsula cross country event at Pool Academy on Monday 7th March. Harry and Scarlett were competing against runners from schools from Mullion, Falmouth, Camborne, Redruth and Truro. The standard of this competition was extremely high with some runners representing Cornwall for their age groups. Harry finished 31st out of 72 runners in his event and Scarlett finished 12th out of 69 runners in her category. As Scarlett finished inside the top 15 she will now go on to represent the Peninsula area in The Cornwall School Games next week. Everybody at Nansloe is enormously proud of the pair of you.
