Sussex XC league (3) Bexhill
Sat 10 Jan 2009Despite a great turn out and three runners in the top ten (Josh 2nd, Dave 9th and James 10th) the senior men are still stranded in fourth spot. It seems the poor scoring in the first race of the season will be just too much to claw back. The vets continue to show great form but have slipped a place to fourth but are certainly in a position to medal on the last race. There were only two finishers in the womenâ€™s race and they are now down to seventh. The goal will be to avoid a drop to division two at Lancing. Elsewhere the U13 boys have resolutely hung on to silver position by a slender margin but the girls have slipped a few places to 10th. They finish in those positions since this age group is being scored on three races only. The U15 girls just retain third spot and the U15 boys are up to fifth with another winning run by Charlie Grice. No under 17 girls team but the boys have moved up another place to fourth. Paul Thomas, AWAD (Athletes with a Disability) Phoenix member, running with the aid of poles, managed to do 6km (3 laps) which is further than he has ever run before. Congratulations to him.
