Straggler Juniors Surrey League 13th October 2018

By Heidi Jensen

The Surrey League 2018/19 season opened in unusually warm conditions for XC running, with everyone enjoying the firm ground before the mud that will inevitably come for the later fixtures.

The junior categories have grown markedly in standard and size over recent years, with a record total of over 400 racing last Saturday. The girls were on relatively flat course on Wimbledon Common, with the boys taking on long hills in Richmond Park. In amongst the field were 3 girls and 3 boys representing the club with all enjoying their racing and putting some very strong performances.

For the girls the standout performance was Lucy Hoseason 10th place in among many of the best athletes in the county. Lucy was delighted with her performance as it is just reward for some hard training she has put in recently, and it is notable that she has consistently improved her placing race-on-race over the past couple of years with her really looking forward to the raced to come.

It was a spectacular debut for Freddie Lett in the U13 boys race finishing in 3rd place. Freddie is a triathlete who competed with distinction at National level this year, and is 1st year for the age category so was contesting the front with boys in the school year above him which makes the performance even more remarkable.
