Last Saturday’s cross country took place on Wimbledon Common on a very muddy and particularly tough course. All the girls struggled through the thick mud and puddles and at least two of the Walton athletes fell over!
The Walton under 13 juniors turned in another good set of perfomances on their 3.4 km course.
Our first athlete across the line was Lauren Highton in 12th place closely followed by Beth Hamlet just 5 seconds behind in 15th place. Abi Wroth was a further 11 seconds behind Beth in 18th position and then there was a short gap before the next 5 Walton athletes came running in, closely packed together. Laura Moore led the group in 30th position and then came
Rebecca Morris, Sophie Lee and Harriet T Hall, 35th, 36th and 38th
respectively. Carla Letheby was the 40th runner to finish and right behind
her was Katie Van Gorkum. Our last two athletes were Shannen Kay and Katie
Lee who finished 43rd and 48th respectively.
Another good all round performance saw the U13s A team move up the league to third position with one match remaining. The B team finished 9th on the day and are 9th in the league
