Kent teams returned from Shuttleworth Park, Biggleswade on Saturday with five sets of medals from the South of England Inter-Counties cross-country match, writes Alan Newman.
The under-15 boys and girls struck gold and there were silver medals for the under-20 women and under-13 boys, plus bronze for the under-13 girls’ team, with Kent the second-most successful of the 12 counties competing.
Charlie Crick (Tonbridge, fifth) led Kent under-13 boys to silver with support from Blackheath and Bromley Harriers’ Michael Eagling (14th), Peter Guy (17th) and Henry-James Cowie (18th).
Individual silver for Jamie Goodge (Tonbridge) and a bronze for Alasdair Kinloch (Tonbridge) was a great start for Kent’s winning under-15 team. Alfie Armitage-Hookes (Cambridge Harriers, 11th) and Tom Kendrick (Tonbridge, 13th) weighed in with the vital points.
The under-13 girls were led home by Kathleen Faes (Tonbridge) in second place for individual silver. Surrey and Hampshire were a handful of points ahead of Kent as Kelsi Cornish (Tonbridge, 10th), Millie Smith (Blackheath, 14th) and Elizabeth Miller (Tonbridge, 19th) completed the team.
Sabrina Sinha (Cambridge Harriers) won the under-15 race to lead Kent to team gold with support from Blackheath athletes Kelsey Fuss (4th), Jessica Keene (5th) and Georgina Taylor (6th) for an unstoppable team score.
Junior international, Alex Clay (Invicta East Kent), was the class act in the silver medal winning under-20 women’s team. The medals were secured by Emily McKane (Invicta, sixth), Dani Chattenton (Medway & Maidstone, 18th) and Rebecca Wilby (Dartford Harriers, 22nd).
