Metropolitan League Wormwood Scrubs

Another strong turnout saw Hillingdon AC’s Men’s A team finish fourth in Division One at the Met League fixture at Wormwood Scrubs at the weekend with the B team finishing sixth in Division Three and the C team finishing 21st in Division Three. This puts the A team in fourth position in the league overall and the B and C teams in fifth and 18th position respectively in Division Three with one fixture remaining.

At the start of the season I set the A team the target of finishing fourth in the League overall and we now need just one more good performance to achieve this. I also set the B team a target of finishing in the first two places in Division Three but this has proved a much harder target to meet given the improved standard of the league and the depth of competition down the field this year.

As always a big thank you to the 42 athletes who turned out to compete for the club at this fixture and in particular those athletes who also raced hard on consecutive weekends after running in the Middlesex Champs the week before. This included the first 10 scorers for the club in the senior race at Middlesex and two thirds of the team that won the Under 20 race and as such is a fantastic reflection on the level of team spirit and commitment we have within this squad.
