Saturday 7th March saw the annual Trannack School cross country races, with an impressive turnout of 36 young athletes from the junior section representing Mounts Bay Harriers.
With ideal cool and windless weather conditions, the only obstacle to overcome was the arduous and energy sapping hill that the competitors had to negotiate every lap.
For many of the younger athletes it was their first competitive x-county race, but which produced some excellent individual performances from Ellie Ringwood winning the year 4 and Yoyo Barnsley 3rd in the year 5 girls, and combined with some strong support running which enabled first team positions in the years 4, 5 and 6 girls and years 4 and 6 boys.
In the older age groups there was also some outstanding individual results with Olivia Masktell 2nd in year 7 girls, Lottie Jose 1st with Lara Reutsch runner up in the year 8 girls. Chloe Carley 1st year 9, and Sarah Bonar 2nd year 10.
Todd Mitchell taking the year 7 title, with Jake Carley 3rd. Tayio Omori 1st year 8 and Marcel Torode 2nd year 9 boys. Taking the year 7 girls and boys team prize helped in retaining the overall inter club title.
The 2nd annual Mounts Bay junior x-country championships were held in conjunction with the event, producing some brilliant individual results and 2009 club champions.
