Cross country running

Tolsta School cross country success


Session 2005-06 was a successful one for Tolsta's army of cross country runners. For a small school of only 45 children it has competed with the bigger schools and often triumphed over them. It is not unusual to get 40-50% of Tolsta pupils taking part in the Lewis and Harris Championships.


The 2005-2006 Tolsta runners won first place in the U-9 Boys (Stuart Macdonald), U-11 Girls (Catriona Mackay) and U-11 Boys (Campbell Macdonald) individual events, as well as winning the U-11 Girls team prize and coming third in the Boys U-9 team event.

This success followed them into the Western Isles Championship. Schools from the Butt to Barra competed for the individual running awards.

Catriona Mackay won the Girls U-11 trophy and Campbell Macdonald the Boys U-11 cup. This was Campbell 's third consecutive victory at this level having twice won the U-9 event.

Well done all of you! Keep it up!
