Cross Country at Kenworthy Woods (seniors)
The Men were emphatic in their domination. Amongst the 52 finishing teams of 6 counters, our A team were 1st, B team 3rd, C team 8th, D team 15th and E team 21st. The Veterans teams were also dominant.
So we lead the leagues across A, B & C teams. Carl Hardman of Salford out dipped Gareth Raven, who had pulled away from Matt Barnes and Callum Rowlinson on the last lap. Nathan Harrison and Nick Barry were finishing fast for 9th and 11th, with Alex Bradford 22nd for the A. Team. Alex was chased in by Ian Wetherall (1st V50), Dave Marsh and Ken Hunt.
Glenn Savage was 2nd V55 with Aidan Raftery 4th and Mike Curley 5th V60.
The Ladies, with many, many missing, couldn't match University of Manchester again, so trail them in the league still, but could match them on points if we win the meetings at Woodbank Park and Wythenshawe Parks. Salford now have the same league points as us though, as they had a new signing for this month, in 6th place.
The Veterans team have also made up ground in the league positions.
Olivia Green (3rd U20) led Sale in with Sarah Douglas finishing strongly a stride behind, other strong finishers were Emma Finney and Anne Chinoy and every point counted in this closely contested Women's league.
Emma was 5th L35, with Anne 6th L40 and Sinead 13th L40 and improving with every race, also Jackie Cordingley 3rd L55.
This is now a strongly contested Women's league, with great depth across the age groups. Miss a few people and points are dropped.
