Cross Country

This awesome set of students braved the elements on 11th December at Newquay Sports Centre for the Cross Country Team Relay Event.

To say it was cold was an understatement and the wind, coupled with the saturated ground, meant the running conditions were pretty challenging. All individuals ran so well. Our Year 7 girls and boys teams came 14th and 16th out of 24 teams and the Junior girls and boys came 18th and 16th out of 22 teams. Brilliant results taking into consideration that there were independent schools with county runners representing them.

I was so proud to be a teacher of the students representing Torpoint at this event. The team atmosphere was amazing. Those who had finished, or waiting to compete, ran each and every member of their school in to the finish line for their lap.

Well done everyone!
