Super seven represent Sedgemoor in the County Cross Country Finals

On a cold and windy Tuesday evening, seven children from St Joseph's battled against the elements in the County Cross Country Finals held at RAF Ilton, near Langport. The children were selected as part of a 60 strong team sent from the Sedgemoor area to compete against the best runners in the County.
Charlotte, Isabelle, Dorothy and Abbie were first to race over the challenging 1.1 mile course! They were magnificent, battling hard to the very end. Next up was James, running a year under age (he has another year in this age group). He was soon into a rhythm and finished like a train!! The final two races of the evening were the Year 5/6 Girls, followed by the Year 5/6 Boys. With this tough, 1.6 mile course, Katie-Rose and Daniel Maydew were fantastic, galloping over the knee length grass they even managed to catch breath and pose for a photo in the finishing funnel.
This is an incredible achievement for all concerned and the children should be very proud of themselves. To be selected to represent the area is fantastic, but to then compete with such effort and determination is an even better achievement. Well done to all of you!
