Well done to all the athletes who competed in the XC at Halesowen today. There was some great running on a really testing hilly course. In particular, congratulations to Alex Stapleton who won the U11 boys race and Georgia Curry who won the U15 girls race.
There was also a great team victory for the U11 girls with Tamysn Booth finishing 3rd, Lucy Corker 6th, Holly Tyson 7th, Lucia Cantone 13th and Milly Fidkin 21st. Special mention also to Emily Sandbrook who lost a shoe early in the race but still managed to finish 32nd!
The U11 boys ran superbly to finish 2nd in their team race. Joseph Martin (4th), Ryley Thomas (20th), Matthew Greenaway (21st) and Daniel Olatundun (30th) were the other scorers for the team.
Shaun Evans had a great run to finish 10th in the U17 men’s race, whilst there were top 20 finishes for a number of other athletes – Melissa Adkins was 14th and Ellen Humpherston was 15th in the U13 girls race, Grace Stirland was 19th in the U15 girls race and Molly Rees was 17th in the U17 women’s race.
Overall the club finished 5th on the day out of 19 clubs and is in 4th place after 3 races. The full results are available on the WMYACCL website. Photos taken by Marc Kirsten are available on our FLICKR page. Well done to everyone who ran!
The next race is at the Pingles (Nuneaton) on 19th January.
