Herne Hill young athletes set a strong late season pace

Herne Hill Harriers young athletes were in cross country action as the under 11’s made their mark last weekend.

First at the final rearranged Surrey Ladies League fixture in Lloyd Park, 10 year old Lily-Rose Brown produced a sensational performance finishing third overall in the U13 Girl’s race but was amazingly too young to be a team scorer. Other Herne Hill U13 girls competing Johanna Nicholson was 8th and 2nd overall in the League, Eva O’Hanlon (14th), Vivi Marshall(17th), Madison Ogilvie(21st), Annabella Bailey(23rd), Rosalie Laban(30th), Grace O’ Hanlon(35th).

The following day at the Final Downs League Match on a wet and blustery Epsom Downs, Under 11’s Frederick Hake and Sophia Sahai were crowned overall Champions in their respective boys and girls races over the 4 Matches. Indeed Frederick was the 1st boy home in every fixture but Sofia had to settle for 2nd place in Sunday’s match. Lucy Wright finished 3rd overall and also enabling HHH U11 girls to be crowned overall Champions.

The Under 15 boys with Harvey Kande 4th ably backed up by Joe Roberts and David Aisa Miller did enough to ensure HHH retained the U15Boys Trophy.

Due to erratic appearances by the U13 boys and U15 girls we were not as prominent years is those age groups.
