A superb 4km run by Law and District AAC’s under-15 ace Jessica Inglis saw her finish fifth in class and earn team gold at the Inter District Cross Country Championships in Irvine on January 15.

Prior to the Inter District event, Inglis received a well deserved selection to represent Scotland at last weekend’s British Cross Challenge in Belfast.
