The third match in this year's Surrey XC League took place at Mitcham Common on Saturday. On a mainly dry but heavy and undulating course, there were great performances from RPAC Juniors in highly competitive races. 

The first race saw U15G'S Ella Scrase and Sophia Bryant in action with both putting in typically strong runs with their trademark fast finishes. Both girls were well placed at the finish.

They were followed by the U13G'S race where our two non-scorers (as not yet 11years old),  Lisette Matthews and Florence Tombleson both ran superb races and finished close to the front. Eloise Matthews, Florence Shade, Neve MacGregor and Livvy Heppenstall completed a strong line up with all four showing great determination and plenty of promise with good performances all round.

The boys match started with the U13 race where Max Orchard,  as ever, was never far from the front finishing in an excellent 9th place. There was strong support from Rocco Secker and Jason Skinner who were both well placed at the finish.

The final juniors race saw our joint U17/U15 boys team win their match by a considerable margin, cementing their overall lead at the top of the league. 

It was a thoroughly impressive performance!

With four to score,  RPAC had four finishing in the top 10 places. Oscar Curry continues to impress and is going from strength to strength, taking 1st place!

Samuel Stapley finished 3rd and was the 1st U15 home. With Euan Willis 8th (2nd U15) and Sammy Rolaston 10th (4th U15), 1st place in the team result was assured.  It was great too seeing a strong performance from Will John-Cox who has been dogged by injuries recently. 

In the League's individual award rankings, Oscar is currently No1 in the U17's. Samuel Stapley is No1 and Euan No2 in the U15 's.

The final match in the Surrey League takes place on Saturday 19th February at Effingham Common. An easy to get to, reasonably local venue with plenty of parking! All Juniors in year six and above are eligible to run and encouraged to take part.
