On a surprisingly bright, yet cold, day for Feb 1st Wormwood Scrubs hosted the London Schools CC Champs where the top 8 in each race were selected for the English Schools CC Champs to be hosted in Norwich on March 18th.
Ollie Bright in the first race ( Junior Boys) was up for it despite having an outstanding run in the Southern CC (where he came 5th and he has a year to go in that age group) in his legs as they were only 5 days beforehand. He led straight away and after ¾ of a mile he had disposed of his only challenger and despite his heavy legs he continued to build up his lead to nearly 20 secs to secure the title and the Gold medal. A just reward for his dedication and attitude to the sport.
Next up in the Inter Boys was regular trainer at Ladywell, Joseph Yee, who worked hard all the way easing his way up to 6th place by the end almost catching up the lads in 4th and 5th place. None the less a good run from him that secured a place in the London team.
We had bit of a wait for the Senior Boys race but it was worth it as Noah Armitage, despite having quite a while off through injury, secured his slot in the team with a hard earned 4th place. Not to be outdone our other representative Chris Ho ran well all the way and secured 6th slot and a place in the team,
So by any standard an excellent day as all 4 from Ladywell secured their slots in the London CC teams and can look forward to Norwich.
