Jenny Nesbitt was 6th in the England Championships 10,000m at Parliament Hill and Alice Wright won the 10,000m at the Mountain West championships. Both have now achieved the UKA standard for the European U23 Championships. This puts Alice 8th in the all-time Under-23 list and for 2015 Alice is 2nd and Jenny 4th in the Under-23 10000m list. The two ladies their and coach Dave Walker are certainly flying the flag for Worcester AC. Well done!

Two of our members participated in the English National Cross Country Championships held at Parliament Hill in London on Saturday 22nd February. First to run was Jenny Nesbitt who followed up her fine runs earlier in the season with another great performance finishing 7th in the Junior Women's race. Also competing was Lewis Sternkopf who finished 75th in a very large field of 280 in the Under-17 Men's race. Well Done to both of them.
Worcester AC's Jack Hocking became the Northern Area Under-17 400m champion in Sheffield yesterday. In his first ever indoor race Jack won his semi-final in 51.92s and was the second fastest qualifier. In the final he was 5th at the 200m mark but ran a strong second lap to win his first regional title in 51.43s and move to 4th place in the UK rankings. Well done Jack!
