Helensburgh AAC collected a healthy haul of medals at the Dunbartonshire Cross Country Championships at Balloch Park on Saturday.

Iona Wilson edged out Victoria Park’s Rhian Callan by four seconds to take the county title in the under-15 girls.

Wilson was backed up by Jenny Scott in fourth and Eva McAloon in seventh, and they took team gold medals with 12 points.

Alex Brown was only eight seconds behind the winner in the under-11 boys to take bronze and with Gethin Davies in fourth and Ewan McCartney sixth they took silver only two points behind a strong Victoria Park squad.

Ewan Minshull backed up well in seventh, as did Matthew Gall in ninth.

The under-13 girls packed in seventh, eighth and ninth places with Lexy Kenhard, Lucy Macrae and Maddie Rooney, with Millie Horrocks finishing in 10th.

This produced hard-earned silver medals for the Helensburgh girls.

Not to be out done, the under-13 boys matched that silver medal winning performance with Matthew Cameron seventh, Andrew McNair 13th and Cameron Williams 15th.

The under-15 boys ably led by Finn Burden in fifth and backed up by Alistair McCartney in sixth and Josh Bain in 10th also took second team.

The senior and junior men were in no mood to be outdone and new recruit from Blackburn Josh Crowther stormed home in fifth, with a late charging Jason Bell in seventh, Cameron Kemp was second Under-20 in 15th at only 17, he missed the under-17’s by a mere two and a half months, Stu Scott completed the scoring four in 17th, the same position as last year.

They were narrowly edged out by Dumbarton for silver medals but took home bronze only five points behind, and it was the first time the club have medalled since 2008.

Jan Fellowes, consistent as ever, was second over-60 woman, only 11 seconds behind Garscube’s Mary Cox.
