ANGUS MCMILLAN and Josh Schofield led City of York Athletic Club to under-20s men’s team bronze at the Saucony English National Cross Country Championships.

McMillan finished fifth and Schofield sixth at Parliament Hill in London as the team continued their impressive winter, having secured the Northern team title earlier in February.

The pair enjoyed a classic battle after losing contact with the leaders on the opening lap.

McMillan looked to have pulled away on the first half of lap two, but Schofield responded on the faster downhill section to the finish and ended up just three seconds adrift. McMillan clocked 33 minutes 41 seconds to Schofield’s 33-44 for the 10km course.

City of York’s Tyler Hutchinson (35-32) and Oskar Fraser-Krauss (36-22) also contributed as the team came in behind Milton Keynes Distance Project and Aldershot Farnham & District.

Meanwhile, Josh Dickinson came seventh in the U17s men’s race as he could not maintain the pace set by the leading athletes.

Dickinson completed the 6km course in 20-06, while clubmate Kyle McLeay came 162nd in 23-02.

Georgia Rothwell (26-26) continued her fine cross country season with 15th place in the U20s women’s race over the same distance.

York’s Andrew Lawrence (17-11) came 98th in the 4.5km U15s boys’ event, while Holly Moss (16-56) came 158th in the girls’ equivalent over 4km.

City of York also secured three medals at the England U15-U20s Indoor Championships in Sheffield.

Alfie Bugg led the way with victory in the U15s boys’ long jump, with his winning leap of 6.38 metres a new Championship best performance.

Lucy Hadaway followed up her British Championships bronze from the previous week with another third place in the U20s women’s long jump, setting a new personal best of 6.13m in the process.

Completing the trio was Amy Rolfe, who won bronze in the U17s girls’ long jump with a 5.73m effort.

On the roads, City of York’s Emma Ballantyne was the third woman home in the Snake Lane 10 miles race at Pocklington, clocking 62 minutes 52 seconds.

Clubmate Nick Elliott was the first vet 50 man in the Harewood Half Marathon in a time of one hour 39 minutes three seconds.
