West Midlands Young Athletes XC League Perry Park - 14th February

The final race of the season took place in conditions considerably better than those at the previous race. The sun shone out of a blue sky and our athletes were complaining at the lack of mud!
Half term took its toll on numbers but those than ran committed themselves well. These included Morgan Hill (86th) and Joe Harte in his first season (94th) in the U11 boys race; Lucy Heppel (98th) and Lily Smith (104th) in the U11 girls race and Caitlin Harte (84th) in the U13 girls race. Peter Kippax (38th) Jamie Cooper (55th) and Jack Powell (65th) made a strong showing for the club in the U13 boys race. Peter had been off school sick during the week so his performance was particularly noteworthy.
We were obliged to provide officials for this event so grateful thanks, on behalf of the club, must go to Jane Heppel, Daniel Hill, Sarah Kippax and Darren Powell for volunteering to act as funnel marshalls and to the 'old hands' Nick Price and Richard Carney for their officiating skills.
