The Pocket Rocket wins again
The 3rd round of the North Mids cross country league was at Shipley Park Heanor and once again it provided a mud fest for the small band of Newark AC cross country runners who pitted themselves against the notoriously tough course.
It was Amelia Chrispin the smallest and lightest club member who showed the others how to run in the mud by winning the u13 girls race by nearly half a minute and she now lies 2nd in the league.
In the u11 boys Joseph Monk finished 3rd for the 3rd time but his ultra consistency means he is lying 2nd overall.
We had three young ladies in the u17 womens race resulting in a 6th place for the team and they are 4th team overall they were led home by Eleanor Miller in 14th followed by Lauren Owens 18th and Tilly Owens 20th.
In the senior /u20 women race Amber Owens continues to improve race on race and was 19th (4thu20) and is in 3rd place overall in the u20 competition.
The men finished 16th team and are 15th overall they were led home by Oli Carrington in 11th next came Tim Bagguley finishing in his best ever place in the league in 53rd. Andrew Cawthra was 136thand Gareth Owens 144th .
