South West Inter Counties Cross Country Championships

Five BAC athletes travelled to Bicton House, Exeter, on Sunday 4 January to represent their County, Dorset, at the South West Inter Counties Cross Country Championships.  In the Senior Womens‘ race, Nikki Sandell was 27th of a total of 70, and was 3rd V35, in a time of 28.40. Unfortunately, there was only one other competitor from Dorset, so there was no Dorset Senior Womens‘ team, but that takes nothing away from Nikki‘s commitment in undertaking the long journey to compete. Full marks, too, to the other BAC athletes who made the journey, namely Brandon Meredith, Bridget and Jim Dence and Tom Farwell. Brandon ran in the U17M race, but unfortunately there has been a blip and he doesn’t appear in the results, but Brandon DEFINITELY did run! If the results are corrected this report will be updated. In the U13B race, Jim was 31st (of a total of 47) in 12.48, and Tom was 36th in 12.56. Jim and Tom were the 3rd and 4th Dorset finishers respectively. In the U17W race, of 29 finishers, Bridget was 9th in 23.00, and, as the 3rd Dorset athlete to cross the line, won a Silver Medal, as Dorset was the 2nd team. Well done to Bridget, and to all our athletes who flew the BAC flag at Bicton!
