First and Third for St Austell men at Looe
St Austell Running Club’s men’s ‘A’ and ‘B’ teams ruled the roost as they finished first and third at the Looe ten miler.
Making a welcome return James Oke showed his natural ability to finish in third place on the aptly-named hilly and hellish course, and lead the men’s ‘A’ team to victory, in the latest Cornish Grand Prix race.
Oke also came second in his age category as he led the team that also included Nick Loewendahl, David Tregonning, John Wisner, debutant Jacob Howard-Endean and Jason Parks to first place.
The strength in depth assured the ‘B’ team of an unlikely third-place finish with Tim Adams, Mike Greer, Paul Johnson, Matthew Henderson, Malcolm Roberts and Lee Tambling making up a strong second six.
There were also age cat prizes for Roberts and Winser, both second and third for Tregonning and Doug Aslop.
Stacie Marks also finished as fourth female overall and along with Oke, Lowendahl and partner Tregonning were given provisional selection to run for the county.
