Silver Cross Country Medal for Lucia

Congratulations to Lucia in P7A who came First in five of the seven races she ran in the Wednesday Lothian Schools Cross Country League (only missing one of the eight races this season when she was at Lagganlia) and was awarded an individual 2nd place medal.

Lucia’s mum, Rosemary Free, has been instrumental in involving so many of our pupils taking part in this competition, and it has had a dramatic effect on Sciennes’ achievements in other running competitions, such as the EPSSA Cross Country event on Monday.

We all hope that Sciennes pupils will continue to take part in this event in the coming years, with more children joining in.

Lucia’s mum congratulates all the pupils who have done so well over the weeks, with a great team spirit, and hopes the P6s will carry on with new P5s getting involved next year. For future reference, each of the 8 weeks in the competition counts for points, with four people needed for a team (earning 4 points each week) and points awarded for 1st-10th places: 10 points for 1st, 9 for 2nd and so on. So the more the merrier!

Very well done, Lucia!
