Senior and U20 Wadac Champs XC Tables

With 6 of the 8 races in the club championships done, here is the updated table of results.

Senior Success at the Hampshire XC Championships

Many congratulations to Tom Anderson who was crowned Mens Hampshire XC Champion at Fleming Park yesterday...adding to his Bronze medal of last year and his silver from 2013 so completing the set.  We were unfortunately missing some of our other stars though and despite great runs from Stuart McCallum (7th) and George King (23rd) there were no team medals for our men this year.

Our ladies however maintained their fantastic record in this event and brought home medals galore.  Led as ever by Lucy Elliott who scooped the individual Bronze medal our Ladies won the team gold (Lucy Eliott 3rd, Kath Bailey 5th, Kate Towerton 9th & Karen Rushton 10th) and the Vets team gold (Elliott, Bailey, Rushton & Sue True 12th) while Lucy Elliott and Sue True also collected age group medals.
