Half Term Report:
ODE Crawley and Horsham
Well done to everyone who did Stone Hall, Balcome today. It was a tricky XC course and a very small SJ arena but everyone had a great time, finished the XC safely and all supported each other! The team spirt was awesome!! Team ‘Polos’ who were Grace Gibbs, Grace Thompson, Lucia Mayhew and Katie Hale finished a fantastic 6th. Big ‘shout out’ to Grace Gibbs who was individual 7th!! Then the ‘Rolos’ who were just out of the placings got a wonderful 8th place consisting off Harrison Chart, Olivia Jones, Jack Dellier and Bonnie Thompson. For them all it was a big step up and it was Jack’s proper first one day event!! So absolutely amazing considering 4 teams were eliminated and there weren’t many clears XC. The kids were amazing today and such a wonderful support to each other!! Well done team Surrey Union
