Redditch Editorial 16th Feb, 2015 Updated: 18th Oct, 2016

THE YOUNG members of Bromsgrove & Redditch Athletic Club competed at the final of five West Midland Young Athletes Cross Country League fixtures on Sunday and were rewarded for their efforts with both individual and team medals.

Conor Smith finished an excellent third in the under 17 men’s race and secured a silver medal by finishing second overall in the series.

In the under 15 girls’ race Ellen Bowen came fourth to complete a consistent series in which she has never been out of the top six and this gave her third place overall.

She led the under 15 girls team into third place overall and was supported by her team-mates Alice Battey (11th), Amy Mijovic-Couldwell (26th), Megan Nicod (27th) and Charlotte Knight (64th).

The scoring team was backed up by Alicia Tanner (72nd) and Martha Clifford (75th).

Many of the team will be competing in this age group next year and are confident of improving on this third placed position with the return of Ellie Moss from injury and Anna Nicod moving up into the age group.

Other fine performances were produced by Gareth Richardson in the under 15 boys’ race (8th) and Anna Nicod in the under 13 girls’ (13th and 8th overall in the series).

Other finishers in the first 30 were in the under 11 boys where Josh Robbins finished 14th and Seb Purvis 21st, whist Faye Gourlay finished 20th and Sophie Groom 21st in the under 11 girls’ race.

Tom Neylon finished 26th in the under 17 men’s race and Ruth Gameson 20th in the under 17 women’s race.

The successful athletes aged under 13 and above are now looking forward to travelling to the famous Parliament Hill fields cross country course for the English National Cross Country Championships on Saturday.
