After hearing the weather forecast it was very gratifying that so many Valley young athletes turned up in force to represent the club in the fourth league match of the season at Perivale. With four team races being run it was pleasing that we had complete teams in three of them. The day started with the under 11 boys and girls running together in a 1200m race. These are experimental races and no team positions were counted. With two girls and one boy representing the club they all coped very well with the muddy and windy conditions. First home was Kate Price in a very good 15th place being the 5th girl to finish. Behind her Lily Dafter was 25th, 8th girl, beating Felix Schaap who was having his first ever race.
With five girls from TVH in the top 20 it was a great event for the Valley. Godolphin and Latymer finished second team to the host school Sevenoaks, 45 points to 58. The Godolphin scoring team were India Wear 3rd Kosana Weir 6th, Verity Walker 13th and Rose Barkle 36th.
The Valley runners for St Paul’s were Charlotte Buckley 7th, Olivia Olsher 19th and Sophia Free 75th.
Other TVH athletes were Ellie Mobed Westminster 31, Matilda Ferrand, G&L 72, Hannah Jusu-Sheriff, Putney 101, Sarah Goodhart 123.
