SW Cross Country

On Sunday 5th January Reegan Scotcher took part in the ReeganSouth West region cross country championships at Killerton House near Cullompton.  The course was tough with lots of hills, thick red Devon mud and the weather was also very wet and windy. Most of the athletes were representing athletics clubs or had been through County trials to gain a place so the standard was extremely high.  Reegan was racing in the under 17 male class and he acquitted himself very well by managing to overtake several older and more experienced athletes.
