U13's in medal-winning form at Southern Cross Country Relay Championships

29 Oct 2021

Our Under 13's carried their county form to a new level when contesting the Southern Cross Country Relays at London's Wormwood Scrubs venue last weekend. 

The girls collected another set of Gold medals, with consistent times from Amelie Shipton, Ezrah Harrold and Daisy Stollery, to head one of the favourites to take the title.  Amelie was to have the 4th fastest time of the race, and only just edged out Hetty Harrison of the B team, as they came in together on the first stage.   

Windsor were to take the major honours in the boys race, as Jacob Parrott, Joshua Eida and Austin Kelly  took second place, with Norwich a minute behind for bronze.             

 The Under 15 girls team of Amelia King, Jemimah Knightsbridge and Sienna Shipton were to place 7th.       

At Under 17 level Holly Watson came through in 4th place on the first stage, but after Larna Morgan completed the next lap the team had no competitor for the final stage.
