Now Ellie sets her sights on South West Schools’ glory

ELLIE Wallace leads a very strong Avon senior girls’ team at the South West Schools’ Cross Country Championships in Truro tomorrow.

The county champion (pictured left) is racing again with real confidence and form after finally recovering the anaemia and her performances this year have been really heartening.

She won the senior title at Ashton Park with some ease though on the day her main rival Hannah Hobbs took it easy as she was racing the next day.

Tomorrow they join force and will have solid support from Ellie Leather and Rosie Allen and they will be genuine contenders for team gold but the unavailability of  Bath runners Anna Burt and Caitlin Wosika will hurt them.

Elsewhere Avon will have strong medal hopes with Hugh Sadler (senior boys), Ellie Hobbs (inter girls) and Enya Maylor (junior girls).
