County Cross Country Champs Weekend

On Saturday 55 club athletes took the fields around Brands Hatch motor racing circuit for the annual Kent XC Champs in cold conditions, wet underfoot but no wind or rain to contend with. With athletes in all 10 races the club had a brilliant day with 2 team golds, 4 team silvers, 1 team bronze, two individual golds and an individual bronze.

First race away was the under 13 girls where Lilly Meers ran strongly for 5th with Hannah Clark 9th and Amelia Middleton 10th combining for 2nd team, with the under 13 boys following next with George Shaw 4th, Max Gregson 5th, Benjamin Campbell 6th and Oliver Robertson 12th, packing well to win the team race and to beat Invicta East Kent who had the first three runners.

Next up was the under 15 girls which saw Morgan Squibb build up an early lead and was never threatened as she powered her way to victory by 14 seconds, and with Ellie Dolby 4th and Zoe White 5th BBHAC easily won the team event as well. It is also great to note that 6 other girls made the top 20 with Jess Neal 8th, Bethany Panton 10th, Elie Osmond 13th, Olivia Berry 14th, Kelsey Pullin 15th and Ruby Dunkley 20th. Shortly after this race the under 15 boys went off and this time we saw Ollie Bright maintain his fine winter form winning from the front and leading the team to bronze medals with Pablo Seema Roca 14th, Same Reardon 18th and Frederick Georgiou 24th.

In the under 17 girls we were unable to field a team but Millie Smith ran strongly for 7th with Charlotte Faries in 29th, while in the under 17 mens race our only four athletes gave us enough runners to secure a fantastic 2nd team place with Matthew Francis running into a bronze medal place with Peter Guy 8th, Callum Myatt 12th and Theo Wood 32nd.

In the under 20 ladies race again the club could only field three athletes but that was all we needed as we secured a great team silver medal only missing out on gold by a point. Jess Keene led the team home in 5th followed shortly after by Lottie Weitzel in 6th and Lucy Elms 7th. In the mens under 20 race with only 3 to score, we fielded 4 runners who ran brilliantly and packed well to pick up the team silver medal with Lewis Mills first home in 5th, Charlie Davis 12th and Joss Barber 13th to score, with Oscar Hussey close behind in 14th.

With only two senior ladies available to race we were unable to complete a team but Amber Reed and Kate Curran ran strongly for 13th and 18th place respectively, while the men had 11 runners on duty of which the fist 6 combined well for 4th place but unable to complete a 12 scoring team. Ross Braden ran brilliantly and worked his way up to 6th, and Will Ruiz also had a very strong run for 12th with Peter Tucker 26th, Dan Kennedy 28th, Chris Tuck 34th and Luca Ercolani 65th completing the scoring team.

Elsewhere at the Middlesex XC Champs at Perivale given not all of our athletes live in Kent, we had an outstanding performance from three athletes who combined to win the under 15 girls team race and show what great depth we have in that age group given what happened at Brands Hatch as well. Ava White won the race in 15.23 with Zakia Mossi 2nd in 15.56 and Lucrezia Polloni 4th in 16.07 to win the team race easily and for good measure Sabrina Mannes was not far behind in 13th place.

At the Surrey Champs at Dorking Sophie Hoare won the under 17 ladies race, while in the under 15 girls event Amy Miller was 16th and Holy Sutton Trott 42nd, while Imogen Hadley ran brilliantly for 7th in the under 13 girls race.

Also Jo Hickman Dunne won the Herts Ladies XC Champs by 13 seconds in 27.56 at Cassiobury Park in Watford. Abigail Smith competed in Sheffield at the multi event champs and competed in the 1000m walk finishing in a very respectable 5.21.16 while second claimer Holly Mills won the national indoor heptathlon for under 20s with a performance of 4049 points including a high jump of 1.71m and a long jump of 6.17m.

For those athletes not suited to the country there was the South of England AA Champs at Lee Valley for under 15 and 17s where it is noted that several fine performances this early in the season have been recorded. Kyle Reynolds Warmington ran 7.01 in the 60m for 2nd in the under 17 mens race, with Rico Cottell recording 8.53 in the 60m hurdles having qualified with 8.49, Amy Miller won the under 17 ladies 1500m in 4.58.26 and Jacob Byfield took 4th in the under 15 boys 60m hurdles in 9.13.

Ellie Dolby clocked 2.23.23 to won the under 15 girls event with Amarissa Sibley 2nd and Morgan Squibb qualified 2.21.12 over 800m but could not run in the final. Holly Mpassy now up in the under 7 age group clocked 25.3 for 3rd in the 200m, Shakanya Osahon took 3rd in the under 15 girls 300m and Oscar Heany Brufal 3rd in the under 17 men 400m. Harrison Thorne jumped 1.90m in the under 17 mens high jump with Pedro Gleadall clearing 1.85m, Lauren Farley leapt 5.24m in the under 17 ladies long jump and Jacob Byfield won the under 15 boys triple jump in 12.44m and also leapt 5.68m in the long jump.

In an open meeting in Carshalton good performances over 60m rom Kieran Daly in 6.80, Brandon Murray 6.84, Duayne Bovell 7.19 and his sister Serita Solomon 7.62.

At the BMC event in Sheffield there were good new pbs for Phil Sesemann breaking 8 minutes for the first time with 7.58.18 and a pb for Will Fuller in 8.10.50.
