Early report on regional XC

Saturday 8 December 2012

The inter regional cross country championships were held at Builth Wells today, 8th December. November's athlete of the month Sofia Vella won the primary girls' race and consistent Jake Heyward (pictured at his medal ceremony) took the under 15 boys' title, leading his team to victory also. Debbie Rees won the senior women's race and Lucy Dennis was first home of the under 13 girls.



Debbie Rees heading for victory

Although clear but cold, it was very wet and muddy and the course got really churned up as the races progressed. Athletes found the hilly course a tough test along with all its twists and turns.

Other Cardiff performances were:

Rhys Gooch (3rd under 15 boys); Ellie Atkinson ( 2nd under 17 women);  Mike Ward (3rd - under 20 men),

The Cardiff AAC Primary boys came 4th - the team was Morgan Ward, Max Long and Ben Vincent (it was Ben's first race for the club).

Another team win, the under 17 boys, included John Cove (2nd), Ciaran Lewis (5th), James Hunt (6th), Nick Jones (8th), Dafydd George (11th) and Ieuan Jones (12th).
