After the 4th and penultimate match at Heaton Park, Sale look likely to medal in seven of the eight young athlete age-groups and have in fact already secured the U13 girl’s, U15 girl’s and U13 boy’s team titles.

JACK SPARK extended his unbeaten run in the U13 boy’s race to secure the individual league title and teamed up with FREDDIE MEREDITH, MATTHEW GARDNER and GEORGE NOBLE to win the team race. Our U13 girl’s team remains unbeaten and have now won the team title for five successive years. Our team consisted of JASMINE REED and SARA & AVA CLOUGH whilst CARMEN SAFRANAUSKAS, IZZY APPLEBY, HOLLY NEWTON and ELLIE GILDART were first B team

Our U15 girl’s team of TAYLOR EDWARDS, IZZY BURKE and JASMINE STOCKTON lost the team race by one point but had already done enough to win the overall team title whilst LIBBY HILL, AVA TAYLOR, OLIVIA BROWN and LUCY ARMITAGE were first B team. Our U15 boy’s team of WILL PARKER, LUKE CHINOY and CHARLIE TITTENSOR finished 5th in this match but should still finish 3rd in the overall team championships.

Our U17 women’s team of ALLYSSA DAVEY, ANOUSKA BROOKS, LAURA HOLE and NINA WILLIAMS finished 2nd and will finish runners up in the overall team championships provided they finish a team in the final match.

It was particularly encouraging that 23 members of the Primary Section represented the club in the U11 races. In the girl’s race, we showed great strength in depth with two teams in the first three out of nineteen teams. EVA KARALIUS, ISOBEL HALL and AVA BYGRAVE were 2nd to Stockport whilst OPHELIA JONES, BETH TITTENSOR and LIZ SINCLAIR were 3rd team (1st B team). We also finished 1st C, D, and E teams. Well done to IMOGEN HILL, MADDY HOLT, MEGAN JOHNSON, SCARLET WRIGHT, JESS TERRY, LILY OLDALE, SUZANNAH FORD, AMY YORK and ANNABELLE ARGYROPOULUS. We look likely to finish runners-up in the overall team championships.

In the U11 boy’s race, our team of BEN KEELEY, LIAM O’BRIEN and JAMES O’BRIEN ran well to finish 3rd out of eighteen teams and will finish 3rd overall with a similar result in the last match. Our B team of FRASER SINCLAIR, JOE SPARK and ALEX FRASER again won their category.

Stockport 10 mile race, a fantastic event, for lots of Sale runners. Nick Barry had a great run finishing 3rd in a 30 second P.B. with Tim Kennedy finishing just outside the top 10 in 11th place and Matt Harrison making up the team for 2nd place. Rachael Rozhdestvenskaya had another great run and P.B. from 4 years, finishing in 6th place, with Jenny Evans 8th place on her 10mile debut. Anne Chinoy 9th and Lydia Briggs 12th, so Sale were first ladies team. Lots of other fantastic runs and pbs on a tough course with hills.

In the first race of the day JACK SPARK gave us a great start taking his 3rd county cross-country title in winning the U13 boy’s race and with OSCAR SCHOFIELD (4th) and FREDDIE MEREDITH (5th) we retained the team title by a comfortable margin. JASMINE REED had a great run to finish in the bronze medal position in the U13 girl’s race and with twins SARA & AVA CLOUGH won the county team title. We also won the B and C team categories due to fine runs from CARMEN SAFRANAUSKAS, HOLLY NEWTON, IZZY APPLEBY, ELLA GILLESPIE, IRIS Mc CARRON and SHONA WILKINSON.

KATIE STRINGER was a clear winner of the U15 girl’s race to add to the County Schools Title she won earlier this year. OLIVIA BROWN had her best ever cross-country race to finish 4th and with IZZY BURKE as 3rd counter we finished runners-up in the team race. We finished 1st in the B and C categories due to fine runs by AKIRA EDGSON, AVA TAYLOR, OLIVIA NOLAN, JASMINE STOCKTON, LIBBY HILL and LUCY ARMITAGE.

In the U15 boy’s race BOBBY RIGBY had his best ever race to finish 1st counter and led the team to bronze medals with ALEX JAMES and WILL PARKER our other counters. In the U20 race AINE CUNNINGHAM was individual champion in her first cross-country race this winter.

The senior women were also champions thanks to DANIELLE FEGAN, ELLEN DOWNS and JULIET DOWNS with Danielle the individual champion and Ellen the bronze medallist. The Gold medal senior men were NATHAN HARRISON (3rd), GAZ RAVEN, KEN HUNT, SAM ASPINWALL. Including the senior men and women’s races, Sale Harriers won four team titles and four individual titles.

Nathan Harrison won Bronze and Gaz Raven in 4th, was 1st Vet. also a great run from Ken Hunt in 6th and Sam Aspinwall in 11th. Well done to Senior Men Bronze in third place for the B Team. Alex Bradford, David Rich, Chris Donnelly and Richard Edwards. A great comprehensive win for Aine Cunningham in the Under 20 Women, with Chiara Young battling through to 5th after missing 2 weeks, it could have been 2nd on normal form.

Shaun Gee ran to a strong 4th in the Men's Under 20's race and our 2018 National Women's Champions carried on for another convincing win with a really strong individual win from Danny Fegan, with Ellen Downs not too far behind taking the Bronze, and young sister Juliet in 7th place. The B team of Jane Thomas, Lydia Briggs and Helen Armitage, just missed matching the men for Bronze Medal Team, by 2 points and 23 seconds.

After the 3rd fixture of the MACCL at Woodbank Park many of our young athletes are in medal winning positions. JACK SPARK remains unbeaten in the U13 boy’s age group. We also remain unbeaten in the team race and look certain to win the team title. Our team consisted of JACK SPARK, OSCAR SCHOFIELD and FREDDIE MEREDITH whilst JOSH COLQUHOUN-LYNN, MATTHEW GARNER and JACK BATTEN won the B team category.

Out U13 girls’ team remain unbeaten and again look certain to retain the team title we have held for four years. Our team consisted of SARA & AVA CLOUGH and JASMINE REED whilst ELLIE GILDART, ANNABELLE BYGRAVE and IZZY KERRISON were 1st B team. Out U15 girls’ team also remain unbeaten and again look certain to win the team title. Our winning team consisted of NIAMH BOYD, JASMINE STOCKTON and OLIVIA BROWN whilst LIBBY HILL, OLIVIA NOLAN and LOUISE HOBSON won the B team category.

Our U15 boys’ team look likely to finish 3rd in the overall team championship. In this match our team of ALEX JAMES, WILL PARKER and WILL STANWAY finished 3rd whilst LUKE CHINOY, JAMES KNOCKTON and ZAC GAILLEMIN finished 2nd B team. In the U17 women’s team LAURA HOLE, MIA GIBBONS and NINA WILLIAMS finished 3rd team and could still win the team title.

Our U11 girls’ team of EVA KARALIUS, CHARLOTTE BISCOF and BETH TITTENSOR were beaten by one point by WESPA FIRE from the Wirral and are joint overall leaders with Stockport. We’re also comfortable winners in B and C team categories. Well done to ISOBEL HALL, AVA BYGRAVE, IMOGEN HILL, MADDY HOLT, MEGAN JOHNSON and MADELEINE CHINOY. A clash with the Primary schools League with Crossford Bridge weakened our U11 boys’ team although BEN KEELEY, FRASER SINCLAIR and LIAM O’BRIEN ran well to finish 4th out of 15 teams whilst out B team of JAMES O’BRIEN , MATTY CULLEN-BROWN and TONY HUNTLEY won their category. At full strength, we can still medal in this age-group with silver medals being the possibility.

The next match is at Heaton Park on January 12th when girls’ team manager LISA FLETCHER will be hoping for teams to take a step closer to a historic clean sweep of all the girl’s league titles.
