Lily’s first XC of the season was on Saturday 14th October in Oxford at the Chiltern League. In a field of over 90 u13 girls, Lily made a good start chasing her team mate, Ants to get a quick get away and left the main field in a good strong position. She maintained her position as she disappeared around the course and reappeared in the corner of the field for the last 400 metres. Over taken by a girl in the last 80 metres, Lily still came in a respectable 7th position (5th in division 1). She had slightly higher expectations so was a little disappointed but soon cheered up on the journey home!
