clear with the course firm, well grassed and slightly undulating. This was perfect for Rosie who was always comfortable in the leading Under 17 group. Spirited running almost took her to third spot in the run-in but she was just shaded for an individual bronze amongst some really top-class opposition. Fourth in the country and a mere 15 seconds behind the winner demonstrates the journey she has taken under the careful guidance of
coach, John McCarten. A gold England team medal was the icing on the cake. She now looks completely at home among the country`s very best and will be anticipating a fruitful summer track season.
