South Yorkshire Cross Country League – Fixture 3 (Penistone)


A great turn out at the third fixture for Team Russell and some great results. A big well done to Heather Berry (City of Sheffield & Dearne) who was taking part in her first event away from school athletics.

Under 11 Girls – Issy Waugh (Hallamshire Harriers) again had a great run to come home in 2nd place behind her Hallamshire Harriers Team mate. Heather Berry as said was taking part in her first event away from schools and ran really well to finish in 11th place out of the 24 runners taking part. Both Issy and Heather have next year in the same age group.

Under 11 Boys – Lysander Lawson (Doncaster A.C) ran well in a very strong field to finish in 8th place overall and Lucas Ward (Stride Out) finished in 34th place out of the 35 runners that finished.

Under 13 Girls – Bobbie Waugh (Hallamshire Harriers) finished in 11th place out of the 30 runners that finished. This was a improvement on the last meeting in what again is a very strong field with the first two girls being ranked number 1 in the UK for 800/1200m. Again Bobbie has next year in this age group and will be back next year much stronger.

Under 13 Boys – Zak Ferguson (City of Sheffield & Dearne) is going from strength to strength each week and it showed yet again here with an excellent 4th place out of the 21 runners. Zak also has next year in this age group and I am really looking forward to working with Zak to see what next year brings.

Under 15 Boys – George Bellamy (City of Sheffield & Dearne) ran well after been ill for a week the previous week and had only managed a few session in the 2 weeks to come home in 15th place out of the 23 runners.

Well done everyone keep working hard.
