The u13 girls and u15 girls teams returned from Parliament Hills with Silver and Gold medals respectively following another successful trip to the capital.
For the u13 girls, this was their first taste of XC success at the South of England Cross Country Championships on the demanding Hampstead Heath course. The Silver medal team were lead home by Grace Jermy in 21st place, with Maddie Short close behind in 27th Holly Bunn 33rd and Grace Forster 46th completing the silver medal winning team.
In the u15 girl’s race, a fast start by Nelly Porter saw her in contention from the top of the first hill. Nelly ran a canny race, moving through the field to finish just outside the individual medals in a fine 4th position. Following a race long battle with training partner Kate Willis, Meredith Winship finished in 11th position, with Kate just 2 places behind in 13th position. Ellie Taylor ran another excellent race on this tough course to finish in an excellent 37th position allowing the CoNAC team to secure their 3rd consecutive South of England Championship in 3 years and defend their u15g championship win from 2016.
