success on Saturday as their ladies stormed to success in the
Northants County Cross Country Championship to take the Ladies County
Team title. Despite the recent floods the event took place at
In the Ladies race with a field of 42
runners, Imogen Norton took a superb 3rd place, behind International
star Sian Edwards and Birchfield's, Nicole Roberts. Imogen was well
supported by Julie Dixon in 6th place and Vicky Ayliff in 9th,
Jasmine Lowdon, Nicola Wood and Terri Mason. Imogen, Julie and Vicky
comfortably took the Team Title with 19 points from Rugby &
Northampton who came 2nd with 28 points. Wootton also took 4th place
in the team competition too. The team performance was particularly
rewarding as Wootton took the title from local rivals Rugby &
Northampton after them winning for 3 consecutive years.
A combination of injury, illness and
clashing commitments meant Wootton were unable to enter a Male team.
However, James Armstrong ran his usual gutsy race to finish 32nd in a
very strong field, with Steve Heighway a creditable 37th.
