Penny McCloy reports – Another race not disrupted by the weather, the 3rd race in the Derbyshire Athletics mini league XC series at Moorways Stadium, Derby on Saturday. The U11 girls and boys ran first, starting in cold but sunny conditions, but this quickly turned to snow! For the girls Freya Lester was 4th, Caitlin McCloy 7th and Millie Davenport 23rd. Alex Currie was the first MAC home in 6th followed by Matthew Foreman 12th and Arthur Limb 14th.
Next up the U13 girls, Olivia Allen put in a sprint finish to come 11th, just ahead of Jessica Lindridge in 12th and Isabelle Lester 16th. Finally, Sam Sargeant ran for the U13 boys, finishing 10th. A great effort by them all considering the very cold conditions.
As this was the last race in the series the presentations were made after the race. Well done to Freya, Millie, Alex and Matthew for completing the whole series. Congratulations to Freya who was awarded the silver medal for finishing 2nd in the league for the U11 girls.
