SPORTSHALL MATCH 3

It was the 3rd Sportshall Match on Sunday 20th and although the number of athletes attending is still not as high as we would like, once again the team that turned out did not disappoint. We had a number of people in the top 3 spots – in the u13's Hannah Moody was 3rd in the 2 lap and again in the 8 lap parlauf with Jasmin Greveson, Lily Moulton was 2nd in the vertical high jump and Layla Brough and Nathan Whyatt were both 1st in the shot put, Nathan Gavaghan and Isaac Helps were 2nd in the 8 lap parlauf. In the u15's Hannah Whyatt was 2nd in the 2 lap and 1st in the shot put, with Felicity Stokes taking 3rd in the shot. Oliver Dakin was 2nd in the 2 lap and 4 lap and 3rd in the standing triple jump. Lauren Wheelwright was 3rd in the 4 lap and worth noting that Aoife Thompson was a very close 4th only 0.1 seconds behind 3rd place. Although no top 3 performances from our u11s there were some good solid performances from all of them. We won’t mention names, but we also had 2 people take falls during their running events and their performance in getting straight back up again and trying to make up the lost ground was impressive! Well done to everyone who turned out on the day. Full results can be found at http://www.sportshall.org/resultsfixtures/results/county-league-results (21/11/16)

NORTH MIDS CROSS COUNTRY LEAGUE

In the u13 boys race Joe Currie romped to victory leading the team to 3rd place (Finlay Grant & Harry Cocking being the other scorers).

Our u15 girls were 5th overall with the scorers being Louise Cocking, Abbie Darnell & Bronwyn Lessiter. (18/10/16)

SPORTSHALL REPORT

Yesterday saw the first Sportshall Match for this season, it was a very disappointing turnout for the club with particularly small numbers in the under 11 age-groups (years 4, 5 and 6) and no competitors at all in the under 15 boys (years 9 and 10). We were around 80 points adrift from our performance in the first match from last season, with poor turnout being the biggest contributory factor. That said the athletes who competed did us proud with some great performances on the day, too many to mention all of them but here are those that placed in the top 3 – Under 11s Beau Moulton in the 2 Lap and Jacob Peers Wain in the Standing Triple Jump. Under 13s Hannah Moody in the 2 Lap, Luke Ambrosioni in the 2 Lap, Vertical High Jump and Standing Triple Jump, Nathan Gavaghan in the 6 Lap, Lily Moulton in the Vertical High Jump, Layla Brough in the Standing Triple Jump and Shot, Nathan Whyatt in the Shot and a very competitive second place for the Girls Relay. Under 15s Leah Proctor in Vertical High Jump and Hannah Whyatt in the Shot. Thank you to all parents and athletes that supported us, it was great to see you! (10/10/16)
