Kent XC League - Juniors
Shuttleworth Park, Biggleswade
We had five representatives for Kent, Lara Atkinson U15G, Tom Simpson and Matthew Francis U15B, Noah Armitage-Hookes U17M and Caroline Ford U23W/Senior Women.
Matthew Francis contiued his fine form with an impressive 7th place in his first year in the U15 cetgory. He did get as high as 4th at the half way stage, amongst a large group, and finished strongly to lead the Kent team to 4th. Tom had a tough day, but still finished 52nd, and 7th Kent runner home.
There was a good run also from Lara who was the 4th Kent athlete home in 38th place, fully justifying her selection by beating several of her team mates for the first time. The team finished in 6th.
Noah suffering from a cold faded towards the end, but still finished 22nd, and 5th Kent man, as Cambridge won the U17 team race.
Caroline was the fist Kent lady home in 17th, 6th U23, leading the team to 6th place.
