CATCH UP / DAL I FYNY - recap of the Dyfed Primary Schools Cross Country Championships & Media & Press

Back on Thursday 15th March at the United Counties Showground at Nantyci, Carmarthen, Dyfed primary schools once again turned out in their numbers for the 2018 edition of the Dyfed Primary Schools Cross Country Championships. A total of 1,417 runners from 75 Dyfed primary schools competed in this annual event now in its 31st year sponsored by the Masonic Province of West Wales and McDonalds Carmarthen.

A total of eight races were held with the year 3 and 4 perhaps competing for their school for the first time, followed by the year 5 and 6 athletes making their final progress at primary school level. There was a grand stand finish for everyone in front of the stand, where school friends and parents encouraged them through.

Ysgol Y Dderwen, Carmarthen came out on top in the team awards as they were rewarded with good performances to be announced as the championship 2018 winners, winning a total of five age groups in the process. Ysgol Dewi Sant, Ysgol Griffith Jones and Ysgol Gymraeg Aberaeron were the other top placing schools.

Esme Lynock (Rhys Pritchard); Rhys James (Y Dderwen); Ophelia Jenkins (Tavernspite); Steffan Thomas (Teilo Sant); Martha Brandy-Phillips (Aberaeron); Macsen Toogood (Telio Sant); Erin Morgan (Y Dderwen) and Ifan Bowen (Y Dderwen) took the spoils in each of the eight races as they were victorious and claimed gold medals.
