Saturday's second Sussex League cross-country fixture of the 'winter' season was staged at a mild, and not so muddy, Plumpton College.
There was a fantastic turn out from the Senior Men with 19 athletes running in what might be a record Crawley AC turn-out for a league match. Paul Navesey (9th) was Crawley's highest placed finisher, not far in front of veteran Neil Smith who was 11th. U20 Ben Golding in his first senior event was a creditable 18th. The team finished third in Division 1, although sitting in 5th overall after two matches the team are very close on points to third position.

The highlight of the day was a victory for Jade Dancaster in the U15Girls. The team (Jade, Katie Hastings and Tia Ford) were third and are now second in the league. The U15 Boys saw George Crocker finish fourth. Alice Wright once again had a good run to finish 6th in the U13 Girls event.

The Senior ladies, (Kennagh Marsh, Anne Matthews, Kathy Peters) with a mainly U17W team, finished top of the Division 2 teams and now lead that division. Kennagh, Kathy and Sophie Dowle were the first U17 Women team and are now fourth in a very tightly contested division.
Muddy U17 Women
Dylan Hanslow was the winner the U11 boys open race and Helene Maurice-Jones and Alicia Macleod were second and third respectively in the U11 Girls. Helene was only 1 second behind the winning girl.
