WINDSOR, Slough, Eton & Hounslow Athletic Club celebrated their best-ever results in the Berks, Berks & Oxon Cross Country Championships.

The event is one of the oldest in the athletics calendar and has been running since 1909 when it was won by Slough Harriers.

And the latest race held at Reading’s Prospect Park recently proved the most successful in WSEH history with five individual winners, three team golds and a host of minor medals.

The first of the 10-race event was the senior women’s category where all the WSEH athletes were in the Under 20 age group.

Meg Ormond stormed to victory in 19m27secs, some five seconds ahead of second place.

Juliet Soane was the next WSEH member home in 16th followed by Charlotte Harris in 21st, with the team finishing fourth behind winners Reading Athletic Club.

Team captain Simon Millett won the senior men’s race in an excellent time of 32m31secs, a full 20 seconds ahead of the next runner.

He was followed home by WSEH team-mates Steve Kimber (7th) and teenager Jack Goddard, who finished 11th to secure the silver medal in the U20 category.

Ben Findlay (29th), Kieran Best (31st) and Sean Jackson (U20/36th) then ensured WSEH clinched the team silver behind Reading.

WSEH dominated the U17s girls race and filled all three podium places with Phoebe Anderson securing first place in 20m17secs ahead of Molly Jones in second and debutante Ida Burrows in third.

That was enough to clinch the team gold for WSEH whose B team of Kate Thompson (7th), Maya Hodgson (13th), and Morgan Hanson (15th) scooped up the bronze award.

Shaun Hudson was the best of the WSEH U17 men with second place in 18m04secs.

His support came from Pavit Kullar (8th) and Dan Brookling (9th) to take the silver medals in the team event behind winners Reading AC.

The WSEH B and C teams were also well placed in 5th and 7th places respectively thanks to the efforts of newcomer Sam Southall (11th), Matt Clutterbuck (12th), Boris Gurney (21st), Zain Kothari (22nd), Marvin Tchangwa (25th), Joe Clarke (27th) and Matt Daines (29th).

The WSEH U17 ladies were in a class of their own, with the sisters Jasmine and Amy Young dominating proceedings.

Jasmine clinched the gold medal in 12m17secs, five second in front of elder sibling Amy in second and Eloisa Harris in fourth.

The WSEH B team finished just outside the medals in fourth thanks to Lily Rolfe (13th), Kate Clutterbuck (16th) and Holly Landon (18th).

WSEH had by far the largest representation in the race with the C team of Ella Van Heerde (20th) Madison Foxcroft (21st) and Isabelle Craven (22nd) placing sixth and the D team of Izzy Thompson (29th), Melissa Hamilton (36th) and Grace Hudson (37th) securing ninth in the team event.

The girls U13 event was won by WSEH star Charlotte Dewar in 11m00secs after a sprint finish. Impressive finishes from Oona Gibbons (5th) and Rachel Clutterbuck (7th) were enough to secure the team gold medal.

The B team took the bronze medal with some close packing from Freya Willcox (10th), Alma Thomsen (11th) and newcomer Daya Baga (12th).

The C team came 11th with input from Elidh Green (30th), Olivia Murphy (36th) , Isabelle Spencer (38th) and Charlotte Green (39th).
