HAMPSHIRE'S under-13 and under-15 girls are sporting a golden glow this week after triumphing in the Reebok UK Inter-Counties Championships at Woollaton Park, Nottingham.

Although Aldershot athletes dominated the under-15 placings, the under-13 triumph was very much a south coast affair with Southampton City, New Forest Juniors and Stubbington Green Runners providing three of the four scorers.

Stacey Preston of Aldershot, Farnham & District was the individual silver medallist and then came Southampton City's Jodie Bowers in a battling ninth place from 292 finishers.

Rebecca Gough of Stubbington was next home for Hampshire in 23rd spot followed by the New Forest's Hayley Pointer in 27th.

Pre-race - English Schools Track & Field Championships: HAMPSHIRE will be out to rediscover their golden touch at the English Schools' Track & Field Championships, which begin in Gateshead today. Crofton's Rebecca Gough, currently third in the UK under-15 girls' 3,000m rankings, will compete in her favoured 800m event.

Rebecca was 4th in the Junior Girls' 800m heats at the English Schools in July, in 2:18.19, outside of her PB, after letting the front 3 runners pull away about 5 metres in the early stages. She failed to qualify for the final as non-starter Stacey Smith was not replaced in the line-up for the final, although she broke her arm falling just before the line in her heat.

26th September - In the U15 girls' seasons outdoor rankings Rebecca lies 7th in the 3000m rankings with 10:37.4 run at the start of the season in Portsmouth.

Despite an early lead by Blue Haywood (Lincoln Wellington AC), Sarah Hopkinson (Gloucester AC) took control in the final stages of the 3km course, to come home first in 13:21 ahead of Jordan Kinney (Royal Sutton Coldfield) who chased her hard to the line.  Rebecca Gough (Team Southampton) finished strongly to take third spot


Pre-race: The top three from the Under 15 Girls race at the Reebok Birmingham Cross Challenge are all in the field: Sarah Hopkinson (Gloucester AC), who also won the Inter Girls race at the BMC Cross Country Classic in Bristol last weekend, Jordan Kinney (Royal Sutton Coldfield) and Rebecca Gough (Team Southampton).  Current Under 15 Girls Series rankings leader Kate Hindle (Preston Harriers) also runs.

Rebecca Gough (Team Southampton), the Hampshire Schools junior girls and Hampshire County under 15 girls 800m and 1500m champions, came powering through to snatch victory in the girls under 15 race.

In one of the most dramatic finishes of the day the lead changed three times in the final 100 metres with Gough getting squeezing home by one second from Charlotte Purdue (Aldershot, Farnham and District).

"I knew I had a fast finish. I've been working on it in training," said Gough who was third with 100m to go.

Gough's a fast finisher  


TEAM Southampton's Rebecca Gough triumphed in one of the day's most dramatic finishes at third meeting of the Reebok Cross Challenge Series at London's Parliament Hill.

Amazingly, the lead changed hands three times in the final 100 metres of the girls' under-15 race and it was Gough who sensationally powered through from third to first to snatch victory with just a second to spare over Charlotte Purdue of the Aldershot, Farnham & District club.

"I knew I had a fast finish. I've been working on it in training," said Gough, who doubles up as the Hampshire Schools' junior girls' and Hampshire County under-15 girls' 800m and 1,500m champion.

The next meeting takes the athletes to Sefton Park, Liverpool on December 4.


Pre-race: The winners of the Reebok races in Falkirk and London, Natalie Grant (Rotherham Harriers) and Rebecca Gough (Team Southampton), meet in the Under 15 Girls race.  Current rankings leader Kate Hindle (Preston Harriers) is also in the field.

Rebecca Gough won the the U15s race at the Reebok Cross Challenge race in Liverpool. 

This puts her one point clear at the top of the U15 girls rankings for the series.

A fast start saw Kate Hindle (Preston Harriers) take the lead but it was Rebecca Gough, the winner at Parliament Hill, who came through to finish first. Despite Hindle opening up a gap Gough remained in contention, just sitting off the pace. Using the same fast finishing tactics that she used in London, Gough outsprinted her rivals to cross the line in 10:03.

After the race Gough said: “The course is quite flat and I like the hills. I wasn’t sure how I’d do but I was pleased”.  




At the Hampshire Cross-county championships Rebecca Gough struck gold in both the individual and team events. With Louise Webb sixth, Michelle Hallett 11th and Megan Coakley 13th, the Gough-led Team Southampton side scooped the under-15 girls' title on a highly successful afternoon for the newly amalgamated club.

Rebecca Gough won in a run-away victory in the combined Intermediate and Senior Girl's race at the Hampshire schools Cross-country Championships in Alton. As just a first year inter in such a strong county, this was a very decisive win, and bodes well for the approaching English Schools Championships.
