Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

CHILTERN Har­ri­ers had an ex­cel­lent Bucks County Cham­pi­onships on Satur­day – with in­di­vid­ual wins for An­gus Wil­liams (U13 boys), Will Perkin (U17 men) and Nick Hughes (Vet 40 men) and team wins for the U13 boys and ju­nior women.

In a good show of the over­all strength of cross coun­try at the club, the U13 girls, U15 girls, U15 boys, U17 men, se­nior men and vet­eran men were all se­cond placed in their age groups too. There were also sil­vers for Orla Wil­liams (U13 girls), Tom Hunter (U13 boys) and Rachel Pad­wick (U17 women), and bronzes for Mil­lie Hughes (U13 girls), Robyn Watkins (U15 girls), Han­nah Thear (U17 women) and James Rep­per (vet 40 men).

Orla Wil­liams and Hughes’ ef­forts, as well as a ninth place fin­ish from Ab­bie Hen­der­son, helped the U13 girls tie for se­cond place with Wy­combe Phoenix be­hind Keynes on 17.

An­gus Wil­liams and Hunter’s 1-2 was the foun­da­tion of the U13 boys’ suc­cess, with Thomas Job fourth and Zach Ra­haman sev­enth to com­plete the scor­ing.

Both Chiltern U15 teams fin­ished in se­cond place, the scor­ers for the girls be­ing Watkins (third), So­raya Lock­wood (sev­enth), and Beth Wel­ham (10th), and Ben Smith (fifth), Cameron Reid (sev­enth), Tommy

Mil­ton Davies (11th) and Ethan Hague (14th) for the boys. The ju­nior women packed well, with Rachel Pad­wick (se­cond U17), Han­nah Thear (third U17), and Maddy Lacey (fifth U17) com­bin­ing to be the win­ning team.

Perkins’ win set up the U17 men for se­cond, with Richard Slade also run­ning well to be fourth and the scor­ing com­pleted by Will Brown in 10th and Rob Hall in 12th.

The se­nior men had a va­ri­ety of ages out, and the scor­ing six who achieved se­cond place were Si­mon Beedell (fourth), James McCarthy (fifth), Nick Hughes (eighth), James Rep­per (15th), Peter Gould (19th), and Alas­tair Melville-Smith (25th).

The vets team of Hughes (gold), McCarthy (bronze), Melville-Smith and David Brein­gan were also se­cond, while Mar­tyn Cartwright was fourth in the Vet 60 age group.

The se­nior women had a small team out, but the three­some of El­lie Bates (ninth), Natalie Baker (21st) and Bar­bara Ralph (24th) en­sured third place. Nathan Hack­ley also had a very good run to be fourth in the Mid­dle­sex Cham­pi­onship U13 boys race at Worm­wood Scrubs.
