As Storm Freya made herself known, the heroic Westholme Junior Cross Country team competed in the Blackburn Primary Schools Cross Country at Witton Park.
In heavy rain the girls set off first and were promptly soaked by even heavier rain. Good old fashioned running weather! Credit to them all for doing so well, especially Eve who led from start to finish to win and, Ayesha who finished 8th.
The rain had stopped when the boys started. Sadly, they were no drier as they had had to stand waiting in the rain! Again, credit to them all for finishing! Zain did well to finish 8th and Henry and Joseph 14th and 15th respectively.
We were very proud of all the runners in such tough wet and muddy conditions.
Team: Eve Downham, Ayesha Vose, Willa Barnett, Evie Smith, Emilia Parkinson, Maia Lewis, Zain Sykes, Henry Gibson, Joseph Melling, Harry Richmond, Munashe Nyabutsi and Jude Hornby.
