Sussex XC champs: Gold sun, silver frost, bronze medals

Monday 4th January 2010

The turn out of seniors was terrific, with A and B teams scoring for both the men's and women's races. In brilliantly sunny but freezing conditions we did well to take bronze team medals in both events.

Josh Guilmant (5th) and Pat Davoren (6th) were top scorers for the men with James Miles (26th), Tom Coates (27th), Max-Patrick Lippert (30th) and Bruce Faulkner (36th) completing the A team. Sophie Coleman (2nd), Erica Martin (12th), Liz Durman (20th) and Anita Jones (46th) made up the women's A team. Katie KIdger, who has transferred to Phoenix, was 19th but is not yet eligible to score for us. Looks like she is going to be a great asset for the women's team.

The junior age groups were represented thinly with no entries at all for U13 and U15 girls and complete teams only for U15 boys (silver team medal – William Dukin individual silver) and U17 boys (bronze team medal – Charlie Grice individual gold). Beth Kidger took individual bronze for the U17 girls and Finn McNally silver for U20 men. Sophie Coleman (second in the senior women's race) took gold for U20 women.
