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.
