Second Gwent League Sunday 11 November 2012

Sophia Vella

The second Gwent League round of this season was held yesterday at Parc De Pugh Rugby Ground in Brecon. It was a new course for most people and was mainly flat, over farmland and very muddy in places. Cardiff AAC had an individual winner in Sofia Vella (pictured) in the Novice Girls age group; which was richly deserved after Sofia finished second several times last season and at Bridgend in October. The club struggled to put out full teams as many of our athletes also play football and as the races were on a Saturday they clashed with football fixtures.

Juniors shine Tuesday 23 October 2012

At the first Gwent League cross country race of the season, held last Sunday at Bridgend, the weather was beautiful, warm and dry with a slight breeze, so it was great for the supporters as well as the athletes.

Up and coming stars Jake Heyward and Ellie Atkinson had moved up an age group but continued their winning ways. Photographs by kind permission of Ian Dixon.
