Shropshire Young Athletes Cross Country League 1

The first cross country event of the Winter season began at Lilleshall with a Shropshire Young Athletes League match for Oswestry Olympians against teams from all across Shropshire and Mid-Wales. The long grass and increasing ascents made the course tricky underfoot.

There was a tremendous debut for Poppy Kendrick-Jones who ran a superb race to finish 3rd in her first year as an Under 11 athlete. With another year in this age group, Poppy looks to have a successful future in cross country. There was also a third place for Cameron Van Onselen in the U17 Boys race. The Under 11 Boys were the highest placed team for Oswestry Olympians on the day in third position.

Shropshire Young Cross Country League 3

It was cold and wet at the third cross country meeting at Much Wenlock but the weather couldn't deter the Oswestry athletes. The challenge of the steep, muddy hill up to the windmill and back tested the strength of the runners and spikes were a must for the slippery terrain. Cameron Van Onselen recorded his first win in the league, easily completing the extended course after the athletes were directed to run an extra lap by mistake. Liam Rawlings was surprisingly beaten, after dominating his age group this season, and had to settle for second place in the Under 13 Boys race.

The second Shropshire League meeting was held at a very wet and muddy Much Wenlock. With heavy rain in the days prior to the races, the course had to be adapted to avoid waterlogged areas but remained heavy going for the athletes. With the addition of a steep hill up to the windmill and back it tested the leg strength of all the competitors. There were second places for U13 Liam Rawlings and U15 Cameron Van Onselen, whilst Ellen Jones was 3rd in the U13 girls race. Oswestry Olympians finished fourth on the day but are now second overall in the team competition.

Shropshire U10/11 Cross Country Championships

The Shropshire U11 Cross Country Championships were held at Wrekin College bringing the winter season to an end. In contrast to last years heavy snow, the 2014 competition took place in warm spring sunshine

The first race involved the Under 10 girls, all in school year 5, with two Oswestry Olympians using their experience from training sessions and competitions to finish in the top ten. Elin Lloyd-Davies was 5th with Mia Tate 8th out of a field of 28. Next, Jamie Davis and Will Evans ran in the Under 10 (Year 5) Boys race placing 11th and 14th respectively out of 32 runners.

Sophia Motala-Evans was the sole Oswestry representative in the Under 11 Girls (Year 6) race. Having focussed on swimming throughout the winter, this was Sophia's first race over the country this season and she ran superbly to finish in fourth place.

The final race involved the top two athletes from the Shropshire League who have battled it out over four meetings so far. In another sprint finish, Oswestry's Liam Rawlings was awarded second place, although both athletes recorded the same finishing time. Liam was closely followed by teammates Jack Jones 4th, Ben Pierce 11th and Daniel Lee 15th enabling the team to finish second overall.
