February 26: Katie Webb and the Under 13 Girls both win at the National Cross Country Championships

The Team and their coaches
The Under 13 Girls Team

MMK’s Under 13 Girls Team made a little bit of history at Parliament Hill Fields as Katie Webb became the first MMK athlete to win a National Cross Country title and, supported by sister Lauren Webb (17th), Elsie Jacobs (18th) and Sophia Chapman (19th), became the first MMK Team to win a National Cross Country Team Title.

The Parliament Hill courses, with lots of hills, is always challenging, but even more so as recent rain meant that several sections were extremely boggy. Many athletes had shoes come off in some more severe parts of the course.

Imogen King had a fine run the the Under 20 women’s race, finishing 20th, while James Tuttle had an excellent run the the Senior Men’s race, finishing 90.
