Brambletye Cross Country Meeting
Today we went to the annual cross country event at Brambletye. Teams of four runners were entered for each race. Brambletye entered A and B teams, with Copthorne and Handcross Park also there. Each race therefore had 20 runners.
The U11 boys’ and girls’ races were run at the same time, but with separate finishing positions for boys and girls. Our runners produced a fine performance. In the boys’ race Harvey finished 4th, Miles 5th, Huberto 7th and Hunter 12th. In the girls’ race we had Mimosa 4th, Ana 8th, Bailey 9th and Cristina 10th. Remarkable considering that Mimosa is U9 and Bailey U8!
In the U13 races, the highlight was a brilliant run by Jack to win the boys’ race. Javier was 7th and Alexander 8th. In the girls’ race Irene was 4th, Chloe 9th, Sarah 12th and Hannah 13th.
During match tea in the Sports Hall the results were announced. The two junior races were combined to find an overall junior winner: Copthorne 1st, Ashdown 2nd, Handcross Park 3rd. In the senior races it was Brambletye A 1st, Ashdown 2nd and Copthorne 3rd. And so to the overall result, which was desperately close ...
1st – 134 Ashdown
2nd – 135 Brambletye A
3rd – 136 Copthorne
4th – 165 Handcross Park
Congratulations to the whole Ashdown team on a superb performance! MH
