Club Achievements 2017

The long trip to Mansfield proved a deterrent to many WSEH AC athletes and thus the local club only had token representation in the National Cross Country Relays event on Saturday.

Two Senior Mens teams faced the starter in their race with the A team of Alex Goodall (17m12), Simon Millet (16m52), Kieran Wye(17m20), and James Tidd (17m36) claiming 34th place. The B team of Johnny Dry (16m56), Ben Findlay (18m19), Kieran Best (18m29) and Seb Pencole (17m20) were 52nd. 178 teams competed with Tonbridge AC the winners.

WSEH AC were the most successful club in the South of England Cross Country relays meeting at Wormwood Scrubs on Saturday, coming away with 2 sets of gold team medals, a further set of bronze awards plus 6 other teams finishing in the top 10 of their event.

The Under 20 Men led the way with their podium topping performance from Adam Moore with a time of 10m34, Jack Goddard with 10m34, and twin Blake Moore on 10m30. (pictured left)

The opening Chiltern Cross Country League fixture at Shotover Hill Oxford on Saturday was poorly supported by WSEH AC athletes, with no runners whatsoever in the Under 15 and Under 13 Boys races.

After securing team medals at the South of England Road Relay Championships there were high hopes that the WSEH AC Under 15 Boys and Girls team could repeat the feat at the National Road Relay Championships in Birmingham at the weekend. It was not to be however as podium placers eluded them this time. Even so they were still the best placed of all the WSEH teams that featured in the Championships.

WSEH AC opened their winter season with some good performances at the South of England Road Relay Championships at the Crystal Palace Sports Centre.
The best team results came in the Under 15 age group where the U15 Girls grabbed the silver team medals with the U15 Boys taking home bronze team medals.

With the Summer Track Season at an end, a review of WSEH AC’s achievements both at club and an individual level, confirms that WSEH AC remain one of the top clubs in ther UK.

At a club level, WSEH AC were 4th placed in the UK Womens League Premier Division and 6th placed in the Mens British League Division 1 series.

The combined Mens and Womens 2nd string squad were winners of the Southern Athletic League Div 2 title and hence will compete in the top division next season.
