Cross country report & results from Stowe school



Banbury Harriers athletes Rosie Weston (U20 women),  Jenny Hannah (U17 women), Alex Scrivener (U15 girls) and Ros Kelling (V45 women) were all crowned Oxfordshire Cross Country Champions on Saturday at Stowe School.  The races were held in conjunction with Bucks and Beds on a beautiful and very hilly parkland course which got muddier as the day progressed.  In the U13 Girls race Tilly Lainchbury had a very strong run in 12th place despite still being an U11, with Larissa Campbell in 14th.  In the U13 boys race Jasper Bell finished 7th.  Alex Scrivener again had a great tussle with Tia Wilson from Bedfordshire at the front of the race, and after running side by side for the whole race and pulling out a big gap on the 3rd placed runner, had to settle for second place by 1 second in a sprint finish.  Naomi Dibb, with her best run of the season was 7th, Lizzie Eskender 12th resulting in 2nd team place.  Owen Knox (U15 boys) made the Oxfordshire team for Inter Counties Championships in March at Loughborough with a 2nd place finish.  Banbury Harriers strongest team on the day was in the combined U17/U20 womens race with solid runs from Jenny Hannah 1st U17, Rosie Weston 1st U20 and Rose Lord 3rd U17 to all be rewarded with places in the Oxfordshire team and first team overall on the day.  On a tough and hilly 5 mile course Ros Kelling (1st V45) and Michelle Bartlett (2nd V45) were both very pleased with their strongest runs of the season, and joined with Charlotte Drummond were 2nd team on the day.  In the mens race Simon Pritchard was 8th V40 and Glyn Pritchard 10th M60. 

Thanks to Ros for the report.
