Metropolitan Cross Country League

Match 5 at Wormwood Scrubs, Saturday 7th February 2015


30 Herts Phoenix athletes made the journey into west London for the final Metropolitan League cross country race at Wormwood Scrubs on Saturday. On quite a chilly afternoon with just a light breeze conditions under foot were good but with some muddy sections which were a bit heavy going around the fairly flat parkland course.


As expected the under 13 Boys all ran very well to win the team trophy by a comfortable margin, Nathanael Zapico was 3rd closely followed by Joe Smith in 4th and backed up by team mates Bryce Breen in 8th place, Alex Stapleton was 14th and Thomas Hughes 31st , his younger brother William ran very well in the under 11 boys’ race to finish in second place out of the 42 finishers.


The Senior Women’s team ran well again to take first place overall in Division 3 after their 5 races. In the under 17 men’s race both George Cook and Jamie Philpott continued their current good form to finish 4th and 5th respectively

Hertfordshire Schools Cross Country Championships, Saturday 31st January 2015 at Verulamium Park, St Albans


On a bitterly cold Saturday morning several Herts Phoenix athletes tackled the hiily courses set out in the picturesque surroundings of Verulamium Park, St Albans when representing their schools in the annual Hertfordshire Schools Cross Country Championships. There was a cold wind blowing during the early races for the older athletes but unfortunately the conditions worsened so that the younger athletes had to contend with a fall of snow during their races which made conditions really tough for them. Bryce Breen, Jamie Philpott, Florence Stansall-Seiler, Nathanael Zapico and George Cook all gained automatic selection to represent Hertfordshire in the English Schools Championships at Blacbburn on 14th March by finishing in the top five places in their respective races.
