Met League 4: Seniors

The men's cross-country team were back in action this weekend, with the fourth and penultimate Met League fixture. Although we had to acknowledge that the league was just out of our reach this time round, we still had to solidify our second place standing. The venue for this week's fixture was Trent Park

Provisional results

Shaftesbury's Richard Goodman won the race from a reasonably strong field for a post-Christmas Met League fixture with 20-second margin of victory. Despite the strength of the field, HCA member Ross Tennant led us home with a 3rd place finish. Ross has been having a very good winter, having been part of a fourth-placed Cambridge and Coleridge relay team at Mansfield and notching a three-minute victory at the Suffolk county championships the previous weekend. Starting hard and maintaining, a spot in the top five the whole way round, Ross had to pull out a sprint finish to hold off John eves of Herts. His namesake Ross Matheson, who improved from 8th to 5th in his second Green and White outing, followed Tennant home. Ross avoided a stitch this time round and ran a well-paced race to break into the top five.

Met League 4: Young Athletes

After Thursday and Friday’s snow, our runners were expecting some harsh conditions, and with the dark clouds forming on Saturday morning we feared the worst. However the sun came out and shone on our Juniors which at least made the very hilly muddy course a little more bearable.

Our U11 teams, sitting at the top of the points table with significant leads, were looking to strengthen their position and they certainly did.
