MWCCL: Women Top of the League

, ,

In another outstanding display of teamwork K&D’s women romped to the top of their division with a stunning win on Saturday at Welcombe Hills, Stratford.

Donned in Green face paint the women smashed their way round the incredibly hilly course. Not only did they win the race, they put 18 women through the field as the success at the front encouraged even more of our wonderful club’s women to join in the fun of a winning team. Jane Evans, K&D Women’s Show Pony for so long, delivered another superb result from the front to finish 2nd overall. She was backed up once again by a plethora of K&D as we again put 7(!!) women in the top-30.

Monica Green put in another stunning display of XC technique, Rachel, Flick, Rosie, and Jess backing up Jane with superb team work and packing! Special mention to Mary who came down that last ridiculous hill into the finish with a smile on her face that summed up how fun the day was. 

Kerry Thompson continued her strong improvement moving up to 67th overall. With Louise Bell, Caroline Park, Jo Hitchcock, Jude Mansfield, Catherine Sherlock, Rachel Aston, Linda Whithead, Lianne Le Swann, Amanda Crees and Caroline Edwards all helping to add points to the other teams’ totals. What a squad!

Having so many women out created an brilliant atmosphere among the team with jubilant celebrations at what is probably K&D’s first ever league win at Cross Country. Contagious fun!

A big thank you to Emma Horsefield who acted as Official for the day managing the funnel. Our ladies certainly gave her plenty to manage as they stormed home!

Next league match is:
 12th January 2019 – Droitwich High School – MWCCL Division Two
