Young Athletes XC Kenworthy Woods
The third MACCL match was held at the University Playing Fields and, for many of our young athletes, this was their final race before the County Championships in January.
Pride of place goes to STEFFI MOSS who had a comfortable victory in the U17 ladies race and with LULU GRIFFITHS third and BETH THORNTON fourth, the club remains unbeaten in this age-group in which we are the current Northern champions. Liverpool finished second just ahead of another Sale team of ALYSSA DAVEY, MIA GIBBONS and MEGAN FINN. Alyssa in fifth place had one of her best ever cross-country performances.
The U13 boys were another Sale team to finish two teams in the first three with JACK SPARK finishing runners up in the individual race and teaming up with CHARLIE TITTENSOR and LUKE CHINOY to finish second team with another Sale team consisting of WILL PARKER, HARRY EDMUNDSON and JOSH COLQUOHOUN-LYNN finishing third.
The U13 girls, who won the first two matches but with key athletes missing, finished third. The team was led home by OLIVIA NOLAN in tenth place (an improvement of eighteen places from match one), closely followed by OLIVIA BROWN, AKIRA EDGSON and ELLA GILLESPIE. ANNABELLE BYGRAVE, LIBBY HILL and SHONA WILKINSON ran well to finish as first B team.
Our U11 team were in good form with the boy’s team of FREDDIE MEREDITH, FINLAY Mc LOUGHLIN and FRASER SINCLAIR finishing runners up whilst MATTHEW GARDNER, ERIC WOODWARD and BEN HOPE finished first B team. The girl’s team of AVA CLOUGH, SARA CLOUGH and TIA GROVER finished third whilst BETH TITTENSOR, ELIZABETH SINCLAIR and VERITY Mc NEILL-JONES finished third B team. Twins OLIVIA and NIAMH GRANGE made their club debut.
Our U15 girl’s team are Northern champions but were missing a number of key athletes. Our team of MAISIE WISEMAN, EMILY-KATE HALL and LAURA HOLE ran well to finish fourth. Our boy’s team consisted of GEORGE SAFRANAUSKAS, BEN DARGAN and ZAC GAILLEMIN.
