Winner of the girls' race!

Boys' winner...
We had the boys’ winner too…

It’s a return to winning ways, after coming 2nd last year, so congratulations to the Yester Cross Country team, who have won today’s Small Schools event!

We were delighted to have had the overall winners in both the small schools boys and girls races! A total of 11 small schools from across East Lothian took part, with Yester’s runners finishing with an excellent combined total of 73 points, well ahead of 2nd place Ormiston, who finished on 111 points.

However, it was a real team effort, so take a bow all 12 runners, who did the school proud by running their hearts out!

Today’s win means that Yester’s runners have won this trophy 8 times out of the last 9 years – a brilliant effort!

Thank you to all the parents who came along and lent their support – much appreciated.

You can find the full results and times of each runner here.
