Lincs League XC Race 1
13 October 2002

There were further excellent Wellington performances at the opening Lincolnshire League match of the season at Bourne Woods. Lucinda Pitcher was particularly impressive in the junior/senior/veteran women's race and won by a very convincing margin. Kathy Warhurst was a fair way behind her in 5th with Margaret Thompson making her club debut in 6th to complete the winning team. Pat Kimpton and Jane Ramsden ran round together for 29th and 30th places. The under 17 women's race was also won in good style by Sarah Coates with Emily Taylor taking the runner up spot and Tash Johnson running very creditably for 4th place to clinch the team win for Wellington. Alice Thomas backed this trio up in 7th with Mia Haywood finishing 10th. Blue Haywood produced another outstanding run to win the under 13 girl's race by a considerable distance. Charlotte Hanson was runner up and Lara Thomas gave Wellington a convincing team result by finishing 4th. Alex Caskie was a little further behind in 18th place with Odette Clarke 19th, Charlotte Gray 22nd and Rebecca Jackson 33rd. Both of the under 15 teams were also successful for Wellington. In the girl's race Rachel Humberstone crossed the line in 3rd spot with Kelly Gilbert 4th Sarah Kimpton 6th and Josina Clarke 8th. And in the boy's contest Dexter Haywood came out best of the club athletes with 3rd place ahead of Sam Delaney 4th, Mark Plaskett 6th and Alex Thomas 13th. There were useful efforts in the under 17 men's race with Ian Kimpton (5th) just holding off Matt Hughes (6th) and Will Strangeway (8th) to give the team 2nd place. The senior men's squad were very thinly represented and Dean Houlton came out best in 22nd place despite being some way below top form. Dave Humberstone finished 39th and Simon Kimpton kept going well to finish 83rd despite suffering from a broken toe.

Elliott Haywood was best of the Wellington under 13 boys in 6th place. Jack Ramsden was right behind him in 7th with Jake Coyle 10th and Dan Cocking 12th. Beren Cross and Henry Naughton finished 16th and 17th respectively and sprinter Jon Jones completed the squad in 33rd place. For the first time races for under 11's were held and in the girl's event Chelsea Coyle notched another win for Wellington in a very tight finish. Mary-Ann Phillips was not far behind her in 6th. In the boy's race Jon Humberstone finished in 4th place with brother Neil coming home 9th.
