A Fist Full of FIRSTS

HAC-Winning_team_Horsenden_HillMore good news for the ladies that graced the mud at Horsenden Hill on Saturday reports Donna Nash.
Aside from Stacey Ward’s winning performance, the scoring ‘A’ team comprising Stacey (1st place in 23.10 on her thirty FIRST birthday), Helen O’Neile (21st place in 25.36), Hannah Wells (31st place in 26.35), Eva Mack (39th place in 27.05) and Ciara Williams (55th place in 27.51) secured a FIRST team place and we are currently sitting in 2nd place in division 3.
Our Vets secured a 2nd team spot – Zoe Dobbs (88th in 29.36), Lynn Hyde (111th in 30.29), Karen O’Rourke (124th in 31.34) & Lesley Conway 139th in 32.43 – just 2 points behind the winners and remain in FIRST place in the Vets division 2.
Helen makes her first appearance for cross country this season and made a significant contribution, filling the gap left by an injured Jen Harvey.
Jackie O’Dowd also made her first appearance this season and put in an excellent performance having just returned from injury.
I thought this time we might have had a FIRST and LAST place but Angela Duncan impressed yet again and crossed the finish line in 186th spot out of a field of 187 – almost 3 minutes ahead of the last place lady some 30 years Angela’s junior. Of course, Angela got FIRST V75!
Solid performances also from one of our newest members, Alex Longton (85th on 29.20), and from Kate Shockley (77th in 29.09).
Thanks to everyone that attended, including the remainder of the squad, Melanie Spencer, Lyndsey Browne and Katherine Wells.
We have a FIRST class team with the winning team spirit, second to none AND we have a real chance of ALL of our teams being promoted next season (A team Division 2 to Div 1; B Team Div 3 to Div 2; Vets Dic 2 to Div 1! That would be a FIRST CLASS finish.
All to aim for at Ally Pally! 13th February – no excuses – FULL squad needed!

Many congratulations to Stacey Ward who celebrated her thirty-first birthday in style at the Horsenden Hill Metropolitan League fixture by winning the senior women’s race. reports Gavin Collett.

                Sally Bigham                       26 November 2005

                Stacey Ward                       16 January 2016

For the record, nine Hillingdon AC men have won their race since the League started in 1966:

 Stuart Buchanan               28 October 1967

John Brown                        6 February 1971

Peter Francis                      30 October 1971 & 20 November 1971

Scott Tompsett                 14 October 2000, 13 January 2001 & 1 December 2001

Daniel Dalmedo                11 February 2006 (guesting as second-claim members were non-scoring then)

Hillingdon AC have won the men’s title twice, 1970/71 & 1997/98, and the women have won three times, 1994/95, 1996/97 & 1997/98.
