Rachel Burbridge again led aggressively from the front for the Ladies team at Nork Park,but the team looks to have a fight on its hands again to retain its Division One status.
In another very substantial field in excess of 330,Rachel Burbridge was,as ever,highly competitive,finishing 20th overall and 15th in Division One in 26.06.As with our men in their match(q.v.),we just have not yet got enough power towards the front of the field to offer a serious challenge to the top division.
Nonetheless,KU student Jenny Rice confirmed her promise of last winter in 45th(28.13) and the form return of Maddy Hardwick(65th 29.31) was a bonus. Our 2 leading vets completed the scoring team of 5(Nicky Atkins 81st 30.21/Susanne Dietrich 93rd 30.46).In support,Charlie Sklenar made 123rd(32.41) & U20 Natalie Sacre ran into 158th in 35.52.There were 177 finishers in Div 1 and 152 in Div 2!
Teamwise we were 13th A team(of 15),which means we are just in the dropzone and needing some reinforcements! The B team was 34th overall.
There was much promise,though,from the 3 YAs in action - 4th in the U17 race was Molly Renfer(29.22),whilst Gaby Miles placed 12th(22.47) in the U15 event and Mae Thompson was 25th in the U13 match in 17.07.
