This week’s pic of the week is by way of celebrating the recent achievements of Louise Hackett.
Fourteen-year-old Louise is a regular entrant for us, mostly running in the Wednesday training sessions and we thank her for marshaling for us on occasion.
In the previous (29/09) week’s event, being paced by her trainer Gareth, Louise gained the course record of 20.08; some thirty seconds faster than that set by Kerry Marchant. This Tuesday (09/10), she went on to win the Staffordshire Moorlands Inter-Schools Cross Country Championships at Birchall, Leek, in her age category.
Both of these achievements come on top of a 9th place in the Sutton Park Relays on 22/09 just showing how far she is progressing.
Additionally, the Inter-Schools XC championships also saw two other BPRC members perform extremely well: Sienna Phillips (12) and Harry Bond (14) finish 4th and 2nd respectively in their age categories.
We eagerly await the next stages of their progress. Where will they go further?
