Wessex League Race 2  28 December Langport 

Our second time at this venue brought a beautiful sunny day, but very cold. The course is pretty well flat, but for whatever reason it seems tougher than it at first appears. WAC were one of the best represented teams at Langport, and the timing of the race between Christmas and New Year led to smaller fields in the races than usual. With Elliott Miller running for the first time we fielded a complete team in the under-11s race as he supported Kelly Snook and Leanne Symington. Sharon Hutchings has been running with real confidence since Kings Park, and this race was her best so far. She was 7th last time out in the Wessex League and this great result was achieved even though she had to double-back on the course because of a not very clearly marked route where she quickly regained the place that she dropped.

Ross Kirkpatrick made his debut for WAC and led the team home with Jack Snook and Callum Kennedy in support to bring in the team score. Well done to Maddy Vaughan-Johncey who recorded her first ever WAC cross-country win in the under-17s. Laura Harvey also had a very good race and between them they ensured that Wimborne were first team in that age group.

In the senior ladies race there was a terrific struggle to see who was top WACer between Nicki Roe and Kirsty Harvey. This time it was Nicki who came out on top. They were well supported by Lyn Hutchings and Annemarie Pearson.

Graham Whiffen led the men home with Guy Thompson in close attendance. A little further down the field we had a group of red shirts finish one behind the other.
