Women runners make it a double

When it comes to bounding up grassy knolls or splashing across muddy fields, no-one beats UCT's women cross-country team, it seems - they've just won the Western Province 8km league for the second year running.

And they swept aside all comers in doing so. The team won five of the eight league meetings, and finished second just once.

As only six leagues count, it means that UCT scored only one point less than the maximum points possible, reports coach James Evan.

And for good measure, the B team also won the B section.

The team over the course of the season was, in picture, Amy Aronson (who also finished third in the individual league), Ineke Nel, Sarah-Jane Jackson, Megan Beckett, Unice Vorster, Penny Henwood, Michelle Vogts, Farhana Jacobs, Jean Turner, Megan Dempster, Nicole Benjamin, Odette Olivier, and "American friends" Caroline Ott, Ariane Mohr-Felsen and Allie Spies.
