The first SYAL cross country of the season was very much a story of two halves. The early races took place in glorious sunshine, and the later ones struggled through heavy rain. Equally, the girls were great but the Wenlock boys were…well, not there. It was a real disappointment for the few boys who did run, and who turned in some good individual performances. Cross country is a team competition and we need to get teams out.
But the good news was that our girls started out as they ran last year – we had lots of runners, fabulous team spirit and some stand out performances. Congratulations to Beth and Edith on their 1st and 2nd. The U13s and U15s are both in second, and Lizzie, singlehandedly, is in U17W third.
The next race is on 8 October at Bridgnorth.
