Thanet Roadrunners Juniors Dominant in KFL

With the final 2013-14 standings now confirmed, junior athletes from Thanet Roadrunners AC have once again dominated the Kent Fitness League Cross Country Series. 

In the U16 division, Alfie Grafton and Kealy Goldsmith were the outright winners of the boys’ and girls’ series respectively.  Each won three of the well-contested races this winter and Kealy can add this trophy to her U13 title of three years ago. 

Alex Kavanagh was undefeated in the five races and, incredibly, won the U13 category for the fourth consecutive season.  With Hughie Coleman never far behind him, it was a superb one-two for TRAC over the series.  Alex will be in action on Saturday (8th March) at the UK Inter-Counties Cross Country at Cofton Park, Birmingham.

Rebecca Hales, selected recently to represent Kent Schools (at Chelmsford on 29th March), finished second in the U13 girls’ series for the second year running.  Jenny Swandale, meanwhile, who was due to contest the sadly-cancelled Kent Junior Schools’ Championships race this weekend, was runner-up in the youngest girls’ group, the U10s.

Other TRAC members who will receive awards for completing three or more KFL races are: Alice Coleman, Molly Stirk and Rua O’Hare (U10 girls); Louis Stirk and Sam King (U10 boys); Maddie Stirk, Beth Williams and Brooke O’Hare (U13 girls) and Henry Swandale (U13 boy).

In all, twenty-two of our junior members took part in at least one of the races, highlighting both the current strength in depth at the club and the popularity of Cross Country locally.

There will be a final junior race at the Swanley KFL fixture on Sunday 16th March 2014, but it will be a non-scoring contest.  Presentations to the above-named juniors will be made at 13:30 in the Five Wents Hall near the race venue.
