3 Harriers Articles in Macc Express!


There are *three* Harriers success stories in the sports pages in today's edition of the Macc Express (31 January). Tell proud grandmas and grandads to get their copies! 
The first celebrates  the U15 girls winning the NW Indoor Sportshall League regional finals on Sunday 21 Jan, courtesy of Anna Carey and well done to Liliana Carey, Mia Donathy, Poppy Dutton, Libby Greeney, Rebecca Main, and Isabel Waltho (pictured with their trophy). There will be a longer piece about the girls' win in a couple of weeks, in our monthly column. Well done also to the U11 and U13 boys squads who qualified for the finals but couldn't match the girls' team win.
The second celebrates Sian Heslop's win at the Antrim International Cross Country on 6 January, putting her in overall lead in her age category after 4 of 5 races in the 2017/18 British Athletics Cross Country Challenge series. The series  will culminate with the final race in Loughborough on 10 March.  Good luck Sian! 
The third celebrates  excellent results in both individual and team at the Cheshire Annual Cross Country Championships on 6 January, with a photo of the U15 boys and mentions of the other wins.
And I'd just like to say that the Macc Express always makes up their own headlines, and used a different photo of Sian than the one we sent in... which shows they have a Sian archive!
If any individual or team competing for the Harriers has an outstanding success that deserves a 'sports page' mention, please let me know by emailing  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
