Ealing Borough Junior Schools Cross Country Champions!
On 4th October, a large group of Year 5 and 6 girls represented NHEHS in the Ealing Borough Junior Schools Cross Country Championships.
Our eager runners had to run a 1500m cross country course at Berkeley Playing Fields in Greenford.
There were about 150 runners in each Year 5 and 6 event so the start was a bit chaotic with girls vying for the best starting positon. Running conditions couldn’t have been better. All our girls ran an excellent race and more importantly completed the course.
A special mention goes to Minna who finished 2nd in the Year 5 race in a time of 6:01:24 and Natasha who won the Year 6 race with a fantastic time of 5:34:85. Morven also finished a credible 7th. Both Natasha and Morven have been invited to represent Ealing in this year’s London Youth Games Cross Country in November. Congratulations to both girls.
We were delighted to get the news just before half term, that our NHEHS team once again achieved 1st place in the primary girls team event (judged on the fastest six girls) and retained the shield for the second year running.
This is a tremendous result and congratulations to all runners that took part.
