Results went much to form in the South Yorkshire Schools Cross Country Championships at Wentworth Castle, Barnsley, on Saturday.

Tom Bains, Josh Naisbitt and Alfie Manthorpe, all Yorkshire champions, were comfortable winners and will lead the South Yorkshire challenge in the English Schools Championships at senior, intermediate and junior level respectively.

Beth Ansell, runner up to Fiona Bell in the Yorkshire, reversed that result in the schools race whilst Eleanor Curran and Amelia Lancaster were well clear of the opposition in the intermediate and junior races.

All the winners came from Sheffield who dominated the meeting.

Sheffield University did well in the women’s race at the British Universities and Colleges Cross Country Championships at Leeds on Saturday. In a top class field they finished sixth.
