Highgate Harriers women increased their stranglehold on this year's Met League championships, with another convincing win on Saturday at Perivale.
Veterinary student Sula Young made a welcome return to racing over the country for the club, and claimed her first individual league victory with a margin of 2 seconds ahead of team mate Astrid Wingler. Young and Wingler were part of the leading group which included Commonwealth Games 800m finalist, Jo Fenn who was running for Woodford Green and Essex Ladies.
Young and Wingler were able to match the early pace set by Fenn who was leading emerging from the first lap of the muddy Horsenden Hill course, and soon the chase was on to catch Young who took over the lead. Fenn and Wingler both mounted attacks, but Young was never headed, finishing the two and a half mile course in 14.29, with Wingler second in 14.31 and Fenn third in 14.45.
Natasha Cendrowicz's good vein of form continued as she romped home third for Highgate in eleventh place, 4 seconds ahead of Esther Evans who was 13th. Kate Jenrick and Jenny Turner completed Highgate's scoring 6, to ensure that Highgate finished 64 points ahead of second place London Heathside on the day.
Highgate's third victory took them 275 points clear in the league, with only two fixtures to go.
