Since September last year Sawyer Dent has been competing in the multi-stage Gliddon and Squires Cross Country event. Every month he has given up a Sunday morning, turning out in all kinds of weather to participate at a variety of venues across North Devon. Although Sawyer is a member of the North Devon Athletics team, he was proud to opt to run as a representative of Southmead School, and was the only boy to do so. Lyra Woollam-Dalling and Leah Paylor from year 3 and Elsie Kester from year 4 also represented Southmead and incredibly between them managed to score enough points to gain 5th place (out of 25). This amazing event is run solely by volunteers and was a great experience for all involved.
