The Alnwick juniors had an excellent day at the Druridge Bay harrier league cross country. The U11s started the day with two exciting races. Alistair Johnston lead from the start in the boys race and had a commanding lead coming into the final corner. Unfortunately disaster struck, confusion over the course layout and Alastair went straight on thinking he’d finished. He lost too much time to recover the lead but team mate Andrew Batley raced well to clinch 2nd place. In the girls race Emilia Waugh had a great race to finish third with Alicia Purvis in 6th.
Alnwick fielded its first U17/U20 woman’s team for a few seasons but the girls produced an excellent 2nd team place. Ellie Price lead the girls home winning the race. Hannah Johnston was next in 6th and Ailsa Batley was 3rd counter in 31st. The boys managed 4th team place with Max Murray John finishing highest in a great 8th place supported by Gregor Batley and Euan Friend as 2nd and 3rd counters.
In the U15 race Jack Price and Liam McDonogh raced well to finish 4th and 6th and gained promotion to the fast pack. The girls managed a good sixth team place with Lilia Purvis, Molly Johnston and Chloe Givens as the counters. The U13s were last to race Erin Givens, Farren Henderson and Aimee McDonogh ran well to finish as eighth team.
A great day with plenty of good team and individual performances.
