Juniors at Surrey League

Posted by James Desmond on 15 November 2017

It was split-location for the boys & girls races last weekend: 

  • Girls – Nonsuch Park – (U13 3k / U15 4.5k) – full results HERE.
  • Boys – Mitcham Common (4k) – full results HERE.

Our girls have great strength-in-depth this season as shown by both the U13's & U15's teams recording excellent 6th place finishes. The junior cross-country scene is in a very healthy state currently with approximately 20 clubs competing, and so it represents considerable progress over recent years for Stragglers to be in among the clubs with much more established squads.

All the girls & boys had eventful races in the drizzle making slippery ground even more difficult, with it being particularly challening for the girls who were running in Nonsuch Park following the Div 1 Ladies race which churned up the wet ground. The best tale I heard was of Poppy taking a fall into the mud in the U15's race, but she raced on undeterred finishing with a smile and managing to find only positives from the experience - see her below behind some of the U13's.

Also well done to Caitlin who was making her debut and running a great race as a U11 in amongst mostly Yr7 & Yr8 girls, and to Sophie (below) leading home the Straggler girls for the first time.

Next Surrey League is on Sat 13th January with girls at Wimbledon Common & boys at Coulsdon.
