Each Child Unique. Each Child Talented. All Children Cherished.
Despite the freezing temperatures, the St. Ita's Cross-Country team continued to excel at the third round of the Flahavan's Cross-Country League on Monday 15th January.
Conditions at Downpatrick Leisure Centre started off icy but soon thawed as the runners got warmed up and ready to run.
We had 12 runners competing in the fun run and they all ran brilliantly. James and Kaitlyn from P7 even got amongst the medals for their top 3 finishes.
The girls' race went off next, with 6 of our female runners lining up to compete. Chloe from P7 came in 2nd place with her team mates not far behind her. The combined team score was added up after the race with the St. Ita's team finishing in top spot.
The boys' race followed a similar pattern, with all our runners racing closely together. With everyone finishing strongly, the boys once again achieved the best team score.
We now await news of the Northern Ireland finals which are due to take place in February.
Well done to all our runners! It was a testament to the talent in our school that we had 26 runners representing the school at one event. We're so proud of all their efforts.
