At the English Schools Annabel Gummow was the star B&WAC performer finishing 3rd in the intermediate girls and as a result got her England vest for the 2nd year running. Others too, produced excellent performances. Elinor Wimshurst in her first year as a Senior girl was 7th, and her performances this winter merited a full page spread in Athletics Weekly. Zac Tobias put in another excellent performance finishing 27th in the junior boys race.

Dave Taylor tells me that Olivia Sadler was 99th in the Inter Girls race, Miranda Sadler 192 and Megan Fowler 315 in the junior girls race.

In last Saturday’s BMAF Cross Country Championship at Ruthin, Helen Fines finished 3rd overall in the womens race while newly joined B&W AC member Nicky Bromhall was 4th W45.

In the M55 race Nick Rose came 2nd to Mick Hager (Tipton) and 4th overall.

Jon Wills had another fine, albeit close, victory in Wales clocking 30.24 in the Atlantic 10K.
