WE WIN THE LILY B CUP!

The girls U17/15/13 team came out on top in the Lily B cup meeting held at Epsom on Saturday. We had finished second to Kingston and Polytechnic Harriers in the 3 meeting summer league but managed to have our revenge in the Cup. It was very much a team effort and valuable points were gathered by people obligingly filling gaps in the scoring team. There were also some good results in the non- scoring events.
