Earlier in the month (9th February) Sevenoaks AC Sprinter, James Beecroft, improved his personal best for 60m to 7.74 seconds to top the UK Track rankings for U13s.
Head Coach at Sevenoaks AC, Darrell Smith commented: "He was really keen to run despite dislocating his finger a few weeks before. So we adjusted his start so he was keeping the weight off his finger. This race race was a warm up for the coming Track Season where he will targeting the Clubs Kent Young Athlete League matches and the Kent Championships later in the Summer".
Jim Knight adds: "It looks as though we have a budding star".
In the final Kent League Cross Country fixture of the season on 8th February at Norman Park, Bromley, Sevenoaks AC had just three runners. Suzy Claridge finished in 35th place in the senior women's race, her best position of the series. Andrew Mead was 105th in the senior men's race, where Chris Desmond also competed, finishing 162nd.
Suzy and Andrew thus completed all four races in the elite county competition with both achieving impressive 10th places in their respective categories, W45 and M50, over the season.
Congratulations to our winning women's team, runner-up combined team and individual medalists James Mason, Jeremy Winter and Pauline Dalton, and to all the SAC runners in the five races this season. The honours list is here.
