On a muddy course in blustery conditions the U15 and U13 Girls teams had yet another great day of competitive cross country running.
With the U15's taking second place in the match, they have now also moved up into second place in the league for the first time this season after the third of the four matches. HHH are ahead by some distance with RPAC U15G's on 209 points, Dorking and Mole Valley third on 215 and Kingston & Polytechnic Harriers fourth with 232. Poppy Wardley finished 4th, her highest position to date and beating a couple of regular close rivals for the first time. With each one of this team showing marked improvement over the course of the season they have a great chance of finishing the year in a medal position.
Following on from their Silver Medal finish in last weeks County Championships, the Under 13 Girls team again finished the match in second place, behind HHH. However, they pushed Herne Hill hard with the first two HHH girls taking 2nd and 3rd followed home closely by three from RPAC in 5th, 6th and 7th places. Emelye Kenyon-Brown was our lead runner finishing 5th. There were 61 runners from 15 clubs taking part. The U13 Girls also stand in 2nd place in the league with one match to go. The top three are HHH 68 points, RPAC 129, Dorking and Mole Valley 194.
Next week sees the Surrey Schools XC Championships in Priory Park and the week after the teams are in action at The South of England XC Championships in Brighton.
