Sharks kick off in style

Harefield Gazette - - SPORT -

HARE­FIELD Sharks kicked off 2016 in style as they claimed four top three fin­ishes at the Wild Wa­ter Race at Bar­row-on-Soar, in Le­ices­ter­shire.

Joel Gun­nery and Conor Shee­han both stepped up to make their Wild Wa­ter Rac­ing de­buts for the U14s.

Gun­nery claimed se­cond place fin­ish­ing in 17:49, while Shee­han com­pleted the race in 18:36 to earn third spot.

At last month’s Bar­row race, Adam Ste­wart took first place but was beaten by fel­low Sharks team-mate Grant Un­der­wood this time out. Un­der­wood fin­ished with a time of 12:52 to win the event, leav­ing Ste­wart to set­tle for se­cond place.

Sharks coach Neal Un­der­wood said: “It is al­ways great to get new peo­ple rac­ing, and even bet­ter when they do so well, this suc­cess is a trib­ute to all our coach­ing staff who did a fan­tas­tic job in 2015.”

The Sharks will be re­turn­ing to Bar­row-on-Soar for an­other race on Fe­bru­ary 13.
