A busy January with a succession of big races began with a strong turnout in the rain at Croydon with some outstanding performances.
In the U20W, Alice Chandler finished fourth and Felix Vaughan matched this with fourth place in the U13 Boys race. Poppy Wardley took eighth place in the U15G, and Emelye Kenyon-Brown, in the U13G, also finished eighth.
The U13G team came home with Silver Medals finishing in second place behind Herne Hill Harriers and ahead of Guildford and Godalming who were third, and Aldershot Farnham and District in fourth. A brilliant effort by the girls against strong opposition. The four 'scorers' were Emelye Kenyon-Brown, Lily Grant, Maddy Pullen and Lucy Broderick with support from Katie Watson, Poppy Oliver and Ciara Maher.
Next week sees a return to League action for both the boys and girls teams followed by the Surrey Schools XC Championships the week after and then the South of England XC Championships in Brighton a week later.
