Plymouth and West Devon Primary Cross Country

With great cross country conditions this year’s Plymouth and West Devon Primary Cross Country event was one of the best yet. What is normally a very wet and windy Staddiscombe playing fields saw mild and slightly damp conditions host 50 of our local primary schools.

Each school brought up to 12 of their finest cross country athletes to take part on the testing 1400 metre course with the top four from each school counting towards their team totals.

Each school were categorised depending on number of juniors on role giving six races in all, three boys and three girls.

After some excellent running displays from the athletes and some frantic inputting of results by the School Sports Partnership team athletes and their managers waited for the final results.

In the end the six categories were won by:

Minor Boys – Holberton

Minor Girls – Holberton

Inter Boys – Mary Deans

Inter Girls – Mary Deans

Major Boys – Widey Court

Major Girls – Old Priory


Also a big well done to the six race winning athletes who were:

Minor Boys - Jack B – Yealmpstone Farm

Minor Girls – Worinika Holowenn – Cathedral school

Inter Boys – Jake Anderson – Mary Deans

Inter Girls – Emma England – Hooe

Major Boys – Harry Williams-Arnold – Compton

Major Girls – Abi Baker – Goosewell


Also a big thank you to all the leaders from Coombe Dean College who marshalled the course, Keith and Jane Reed from Armada athletics network and both Plymouth School Sports Partnerships for running the event.
