Training over the winter paid off when pupils from Motherwell’s Cathedral Primary starred in the North Lanarkshire schools cross country finals at Coatbridge.

Liam McQuaid romped home in the P5 boys’ race to take the school’s first ever gold medal in the event.

Then Joey Leach made it a golden double for Cathedral when she overtook the leader on the home straight to win the P6 girls’ race.

On top of that the P7 girls were second in the team event and the P5 boys’ team placed third.

Cathedral has an after-school cross country club and the coaches all agreed that the pupils had trained well and worked very hard on race day.
