Gwent League – Saturday 8th February 2014 – Further Junior Results

14 Feb

Results from the Gwent League Fourth Race for the younger age groups held at Penlan Leisure Centre on Saturday 8th February 2014 are now on the Gwent League web-site. An extract of club results is included below.

Minor Boys:

As already reported Aiden Oscroft finished seventh (5:15), Caleb Owen twelfth (5:19) and Otto Kingston eighteenth (5:30) in a field of 61 starters and 59 finishers. Caleb is currently in ninth place overall with a score of 226 points. The team finished fourth on the day and are twelfth in the overall standings – but could move up if we field a full-strength team in the final fixture.

Under-13 Boys:

Stan Harding-Hill led the team home in eleventh place (9:53) with a great run, Nathan Merchant was next home (fifteenth in 10:05), Dan Marshall finished thirty-third (11:08) and Harry Feehily was thirty-sixth in 11:24 to complete the ‘A’ team. Robert Kiekuth was fortieth of the fifty-two finishers in 12:00. In the overall individual standings Stan Harding-Hill is eighth with 236 points.

The team were sixth on the day and are currently sixth in the standings after four races.

Under-15 Boys:

Hugh Sadler was right in the mix at Brecon and finished fourth in 12:26. Anton Mills was seventh (13:06) and Jack Flower ninth in 13:17. Otis Harding Hill completed the scoring four in fourteenth place (13:44). Kyle Haynes was eighteenth in 14:33 and Billy Cochrane was nineteenth in 14:44.

Hugh Sadler is currently lying second in the overall standings. Bristol were first team on the day and now hold a narrow two point lead over North Somerset at the top of the table after four races.

Under-13 Girls:

As previous reported Nancy Dineen (10:18) and Katie Jones (10:20) finished third and fourth in the race and with support from Olivia Crofts in eighth (10:40) and Emily Moore (fifteenth in 10:58) must have won the team event on the day – notwithstanding the results on the Gwent League web-site. By my calculation their score of 162 was far superior to any other team’s score. The team are now fifth overall – just two points behind local rivals Westbury Harriers. Nancy Dineen is now fourth individual overall but is unlikely to overhaul Sofia Vella to get into the top three for the season.

Under-15 Girls:

Hannah Dyer was our sole representative in this age group finishing twenty-first of the twenty-nine finishers in 16:38.
