Three pupils from Sgoil a’ Bhac participated in the Western Isles Cross Country Championships in Uist last Saturday. Steven Mutch (P7) and Tyler Gillies (P5) ran un the U11 boys race and Hannah Mackenzie (P5) ran in the U9 girls event. Hannah won the girls race, an excellent achievement against strong runners. In the U11s Steven came in fourth and Tyler, who was the youngest runner in the race, came in 13th in a field of 26 runners. Well done to the three of them for participating so well in this event.
Pupils from Sgoil a’ Bhac have been competing throughout this winter in the Lewis and Harris Cross Country Winter Series. The third and final race in this competition was held on Saturday 7th February and our school was well represented in the field of runners. We’d like to give special mention to Steven Mutch from P6 who was the winner on Saturday and overall series winner in the Under 11 boys.
Thank you to Mandy Gillies for providing the photo and for organising the school team for this race. Thanks also to the staff who helped the runners prepare for the Winter Series with training runs during the school day.
