There were some good results at the final fixture of the North West London cross country league at Wormwood Scrubs. Jessica Leane (pictured) and John Fielding took individual wins in the U17 races. George Kerry took third but had a good battle with John in the course of the race. There were top-three placings in the U15 races too, for Anisa Ibrahim and Sudeys Hersi. U13 Mohamed Ibrahim showed pleasing progress in his race, displaying good technique.
In terms of the team performances, the U17 men won. The U15 boys were well represented and finished third; Sudeys was backed up by Arun, Chauncey, Kirk, Matteo and Kai.
Maryam Hussain and Roisin Lynch helped the U17 women to second place behind Jessica, while the U15 girls’ team was nudged out of third place by just one point, despite fielding just Anisa and Fiona Coutts.
A round of applause to all the young athletes who have turned out for the club this cross country season, and a big thank you to all coaches, team managers, officials and other volunteers who have given their time and expertise so generously. Check the website and Facebook page for details of the upcoming Awards evening… and please return cups and trophies as soon as possible, so they can be engraved in time!
