South West Schools XC Championships, Truro Ė 27 February 2010

Abbie Hine reports as WACers race for Dorset.

About two months ago there was the Dorset Schools Cross-Country Championships. In this event five Wimborne runners ran: Abigail Logan, Abbie Hine, Piers Copeland, Ryan Walbridge and Sharon Hutchings. Three out of five runners then proceeded to, and ran in, the South West Schools Cross-Country Championships in Truro on the 27th February. (Abigail Logan, Ryan Walbridge and Abbie Hine).

Abbie and Abi in their county vests

The event started with the year 7 girls, Abbie Hine and Abigail Logan ran 3k. The top 15 in each race got a letter inviting them to the mini marathon, but then only five people got selected. Abbie Hine was running in spikes and Abi Logan was running in trainers so Abi Logan had a slightly disadvantage, but she still did very well and came 47th. Abbie Hine came 14th and got a letter for the mini marathon but hasnít heard anything else about it so she wonít be going. Both the girls did very well and managed to get their picture in the local Echo!

First time in a Dorset vest for Ryan

Ryanís race went very well too, he came 34th and on the first lap he was a long way back and he managed to skip about 30 people and make his way through the crowd!  He did very well, so did Abi and Abbie! and they even got a cool Dorset top J which says Dorset on the back ! J
