Shrewsbury AC’s Junior Girls are County Cross Country Champions

09 Dec 2021

The conclusion of the Shropshire Young Athletes League Cross Country series for the winter of 2021 has seen a number of Shrewsbury AC’s Junior runners finish victorious.

The club saw a number of individual winners at the end of the four-race series, in which Junior athletes from clubs and schools across Shropshire compete on various off-road courses. Gold medals were won by Adam Bentham (Under 15 Boys), Beth Trow (Under 15 Girls), and special mention goes to Megan Buckingham (Under 11 Girls), who won all four races. There were also Silver medals for Jake Hopkins (Under 15 Boys) and Rosie Morris (Under 17 Girls) and Bronze medals for Harry Marston-Jones (Under 11 Boys) and Rosie Zlotowitz (Under 17 Girls).

Shrewsbury AC’s Girls were declared the overall champions, with a combined score of 2,045 proving enough to edge out Telford AC. The Under 13 Girls Team also carried their category, with team Silver medals for the Under 15 Boys, Under 15 Girls and Under 17 Girls and team Bronze for the Under 11 Boys and Girls.

Congratulations to all who competed, and thank you to the parents and volunteers who make these happen. Thanks in particular go to Grace Hough for her overall organisation and Anne Robinson, Sue Wigley, Patricia Bridgewater and Tony Lidster.
