Youngsters shine at North Midlands League
The final race of the North Midlands League series was held at Wollaton Park, Nottingham on Saturday 10th January. The U11 mixed team were in splendid form to finish second placed team on the day with their collective score of 34 points.
The team of Destiny Nicholson (10), Jack Stretton (11), Elsie Robinson (13) and Scarlett Lewin (30) had raced consistently well throughout the League races which meant that they claimed the overall 2nd place team in the age group, just losing out to Nene Valley.
The U11 age group currently compete as a mixed age group with the first three athletes across the line counting as scoring team members but next year with the format changing to a more traditional race set up with boys and girls scoring separately, Leicester Coritanians should profit from this.
Not only did the U11's score in the team event, but top 10 runner on the day, Destiny Nicholson, was placed 4th overall in the individual standings and was the highest placed girl with 26 points.
