In the under-15 race, Joanne Johnson was first home in 102nd place, with Liesel Phillips 120th and Emma Derwent 156th which, with three to score, represented excellent 'packing' by the Wallasey girls.
These were Marie Burke and Lynne Kennedy who both performed very well in this high standard contest to finish 108th and 109th respectively. The battle for places in Wallasey's National Cross Country Championship team has now entered its final phase, with only the Northern Championships on February 8 left, to settle which nine runners will gain selection. Up to 20 runners have come into contention at one point or another which is indicative of the great improvement in the club's in-depth strength in recent years.
Alec Boughey has remained the top runner throughout the winter, finishing first scorer in most races, as well as breaking the course record for the club's Christmas handicap.
