Jill warmed up for her cross-country success by finishing 5th in the indoor 3000m in the W50 age group. Then, at the end of the week, on a flattish racecourse with warm weather, the Great Britain W50 Cross Country masters team gained a silver medal by virtue of their three highest finishers being in 11th place (Sharyn Ramage), 9th place (Susie Tawney)and Jill finishing in the bronze medal position with a great run. Congratulations to Jill for her excellent performances.
Yeovil & Wells went to Horsham knowing that a 5th place finish in the final match would guarantee the League Title. A number of athletes were called up to the Yeovil British Athlete's League team and so a small group of 10 athletes did battle at Horsham. The end result was truly superb with Yeovil winning the final match by 40 points to win the league in style (with 4 wins out of 5 matches).
