& East Dorset Cross Country League 2002
The biggest and the best Poole and
East Cross Country League to date! The statistics make interesting reading.
The final league race was combined with
the Poole & East Dorset Championships to help selection for the Dorset
Schools Championships to be held on January 18th 2003 over the
Ferndown Upper School course.
Overall league placings: these can be
seen on the Dorset Schools web site: www.dsaa.org.uk
Please advise if there are any
The first three runners in the overall
league and the winner of the Championship will receive a medal. There are also
certificates to the eight winning teams.
Many of the runners in the league
competed in a cross country match in Brittany on 8th December. It is
proposed that in future years selection for this match will be linked to
positions in the league. Please note that runners from outside Poole & East
Dorset are very welcome to run in the league races as guests, but are not
eligible for awards.
A word of thanks to Andy Ogilvie (Ferndown)
for organising the final race, the Poole authorities for permission to stage two
races on Borough land, to Chris Branford (Lytchett) for his control in the
funnel and to my Canford colleagues without whom the races could not have taken
place: Dave Kirk and Jerry Orme (timekeepers); Caroline Barrett, Andrew Fearnley,
Phil Burgess and Andrew Powell (markers).
