Leeds Schools AA – Leeds League Cross Country Sat 5 November 2011 at Middleton Park, Leeds

It was a completely different Saturday morning to our first visit to Middleton Park, this time it was cold, wet and slightly misty and there didn’t seem to be as good a turn out, but the young Leeds City AC runners all did well in the conditions.

Our only U13 girl Kimberley Eastwood ran well coming 12th. Our U13 boys Billy Dawson and Dominic Peterson were 2nd and 3rd and started just before the U15 girls race so it seemed a little strange for them on occasions being overtaken by the bigger girls! Both boys ran well and came respectively. Cleo Gorringe our latest signing who is a good swimmer and runner ran well with Laura Benson (both girls being bottom age) not far behind her they came 5th and 6th respectively. Of course our U15 boys were there in strength albeit Dominic Owens was missing on this occasion. A strong looking Keiran Savage came home 1st, followed by a determined Jack Allison in 2nd. Zac Widery held his own and managed 4th and not far behind was Ben Toothill in 8th.

Sean Flanagan took 1st place in the U19 race and although our very own Luke Cooper got off to a good start he was on this occasion unable to finish due to a niggling injury.

Well done to all our young runners!
