Primary Schools Cross Country Relays 2015/6

This winter’s series of relays produced the closest final in its 8 years history since it was first organised in 2007/8 by N&S School Sports Partnership, the, then, Grove School and Newark AC.  Going into the final race on 1st March, the event, which has been held annually at Grove playing fields, saw Abbeygates, with 28 points, leading defending champions, Bleasby, by just one point with Claypole and Highfields tying for 3rd place a further 4 points behind.

Bleasby had won the first race, in October, from Claypole with Abbeygates 3rd, but Abbeygates then won the next 2 races, in November and February, with Bleasby gaining 2nd and 3rd places.

Bleasby had 4 teams on the day 2 of which featured strongly through the race, but it was Claypole’s Peter McKee who led in the first leg runners with the fastest time of the day (3.06m). He was closely followed by Alfie Richardson (3.09) of Bleasby Blue team and Lewis Gallooley-Rogers (3.11) of Bleasby Red team. While Bleasby were running their fastest runners on leg 1, Abbeygates had Sam Potts, a year 4 boy, who came in 8th, with the 2nd fastest time for his age, 3.28.

Leg 2 saw Violet Roberts of Bleasby Blue produce the fastest time for a year 6 girl, 3.30, which took her team into the lead. Bleasby Red stayed in 3rd place behind Claypole, while Alice Jones moved Abbeygates into 4th place, with 3.32, the second fastest Y6G of the day.

Bleasby Blue maintained the lead for the next 2 legs, while their Red team moved into 2nd place and Abbeygates up to 3rd place. On leg 5 Bleasby Red moved into the lead, with Freddie Polak producing the fastest time for a Y5B of 3.27. Excellent runs by Beth Hamilton and Elliott Havecroft saw Abbeygates move into 2nd place, while Joe Doubell took Barnby Road up to 3rd

Abbeygates had saved their fastest runner, Francis Dermody, for the last leg, while Evie Wicks, a Y5G, was starting the final leg for Bleasby Red with just an 18 second lead. Although Francis gained a few seconds, Evie produced an excellent run with 3.28, the fastest girls’ time of the day, giving her team a 9 seconds win. Behind these 2, Highfields had moved steadily through the field after lying 17th on leg one, and their 2 fastest runners, Joe Rose and Mason Heppel, brought them up to 3rd place over the last 2 laps, followed by Barnby Road, John Blow , Claypole, Coddington and Blidworth Oaks.

It was interesting to note that the first 3 teams had strong runners on all legs – they were the only teams with all 6 members running below 4.00 minutes.

With Bleasby edging out Abbeygates on the day, it meant that the 2 teams tied for 1st place over the winter series – the first joint winners since the start of the competition. Highfields’ strong finish ensured that they took 3rd place over Claypole.

Team result on the day: 1: Bleasby 21.15; 2: Abbeygates 21.24; 3: Highfields 21.55.

Fastest runners: Y6B: Peter McKee (Claypole) 3.06; Y6G: Violet Roberts (Bleasby) 3.30; Y5B: Freddie Polak 3.27; Y5G: Evie Wicks (Bleasby) 3.28; Y4B: Jack Trippett (Coddington) 3.27; Y4G: Kelsey Haigh (Bleasby) 3.44

Series team result: joint 1st: Abbeygates and Bleasby (37 points); 3rd: Highfields (31); 4th: Claypole (28); 5th: Barnby Road (26); 6th: John Blow (21); 7th Coddington (12); 8th:Blidworth Oaks (3)
