It has been a week of sporting success for us. On Wednesday William was selected to represent the school at an indoor athletics meet at Furness Academy in Barrow. His team came third in the relay.
On Thursday Megan represented the school at a Cross Country event at UVHS. (Alas no photos allowed). Megan started sensibly at the back of the field of 33 girls as the outward leg was downhill and sure to be too fast. At the half way point she had progressed through the field into 20th place and her stamina and pacing was shining through on the uphill leg. The final turn saw her up to 14th and the cheering crowd spurred her to sprint over the last sixty metres, crossing the line in 9th place, by far the fastest finisher.
What has pleased her most about her performance is that the school have recognised her sporting potential and she has been selected for another track and field event next Thursday. Possibly entering the Javelin!
Today William scored two quick goals in the first half against Milnthorpe which put them in control of the match eventually running out 6:1 winners.
