Cross Country and Athletics

2017/18 Cross Country and Athletics


This year has been another successful year for Spa Primary School's Cross Country squad. A dedicated group of over twenty children met every Monday afternoon at Ballynahinch Rugby Club to train for many cross country races. 

The group were coached by one of our parents, Joanne Foster, and Mr Gilmore and their dedication through wind, rain and sometimes cold temperatures was amazing.

We topped off a hugely successful year with a superb performance at the Indoor Athletics Competition in Downpatrick. 

Both the boys and girls teams did very well but our girls won 3 out of 5 competitions while finishing 2nd in a 4th long distance race. 

Our school are so proud of the efforts and results the team achieved at our season closing competition.
