On Saturday 21st January a Mounts Bay Academy team of 16 pupils attended the annual Cornwall Schools Cross Country Championships. The weather was beyond appalling, and a typical scene for cross-country running with strong winds and drizzly rain. However that did not stop Team MBA from producing some excellent performances across all the year groups. Notable performances were:
The Year 7 girls team finishing 3rd overall, including Ellie Ringwood finishing second.
Year 8 Max Caddy running an exceptional, tactical race finishing 2nd in the Year 8 and 9 races.
A huge well done goes to the whole Team for an excellent effort, setting a truly brilliant example to the Academy. We are waiting conformation from the event results, but we have at least four pupils in the Cornwall Squad on the 4th February and a further six on the reserve list.
Well done to all.
Mr N Eddy
