There were some great performances by Royal Sutton athletes at the Warwickshire County Championships at Cofton yesterday. Torrential morning rain led to some horrendous muddy wet conditions, in particular for the early races – of the seven RSC athletes competing in the U13 girls race only four finished the race with both shoes!!!
The highlight was a superb individual gold medal for Shaun Evans in the U17 men’s race. He led home the team of Alex Jones, Max Sellars and Alex Blackham to a team gold, with Alex Jones finishing 3rd and Max Sellars finishing 5th.
Other highlights included a silver for Georgia Curry in the U17 women’s race. In the U15 girl’s race Ellen Humpherston finished 4th and led home the team, which also included Lucy Ollerenshaw and Verity O’Shea, to a bronze. Ben Horton had a strong run in the U15 boys race finishing 9th which puts him in contention for a county vest later this winter. The U13 girl’s team of Caitlin White, Rachel White and Lucy Corker also won team bronze.
Well done to everyone who took part. The full results are available on the Warwickshire County AA website.
