Team captain Simon Millett
There was a sparse attendance from WSEH athletes at the Chiltern Cross Country League meet in Milton Keynes on Saturday, but those that did make it made it count.
The senior men gave a good account of themselves, with five toeing the start line.
James Tidd produced his best performance to date, finishing second in 28.03. Team captain Simon Millett kept in touch, finishing fourth in 29.15 with Ben Findlay the next to appear in 11th place (30.43). Rob McHarg was also back in WSEH colours, finishing 12th in 30.48.
Charlotte Firth was WSEH’s lone representative in the senior women’s race, but she stood out from the crowd, winning in 20.52.
There was also a good run from Morgan Hanson in the u20s race, finishing second in 17.18.
Isabel Spencer represented WSEH in the u15s girls race, finishing 13th overall in 20.51, while Freya Ruffels was in a class of her own to win the u13s girls event in 10.47. Sophie Hitching came 20th in 14.15 one place ahead of Lily Kinnon in 14.18.
Joseph Clarke was seventh in the u17s men’s race in 32.38, while brothers James and Felix Palmer both ran well in their respective events, James coming third in the u15s race in 22.25 and Felix 12th in the u13s event in 11.151.
Thanks to good results in the early season races, WSEH remain in contention with the club second in the u17s men’s and ladies age group and third in the senior ladies competition.
