Berkshire Sportshall League Match 1

Team Kennet had their first Sportshall League Match of the season on Sunday at Eton. With 282 athletes, 19 from Team Kennet, it was a busy afternoon. The U15 and U13 teams were short on athletes so couldn’t compete in all events, but had some fantastic individual performances.

The U15 boys came 5th, with individual wins from Harry Booker in the Shot and Oliver Bazin in the Chest Push. Harry also came 2nd in the Hi Stepper. Oliver Gregory and Oliver Bazin took 3rd in shot and Standing Long Jump respectively.

The U13 boys had just 2 athletes, coming 11th. U13 Girls, with 3 athletes, came 12th overall. An individual win came from Aimee Dickson in the Speedbounce with Annabel Gibson taking 4th in the Hi stepper.

The U11 boys team were all newcomers to Sportshall competition, but quickly became team mates and jumped straight in, coming 6th overall. Andrew Barker won the foam Javelin and in the 2+2 lap the team of Theo Campbell and James Fenner took 2nd place.

The U11 girls had our best team result of the day, coming 3rd place overall. Highlights include Kirsten Fraser coming 2nd in the standing long jump, closely followed by Lyla Goodwin just 2cm behind in 5th place. Harriet Gibson took 3rd in the Speedbounce, Grace Wotherspoon came in 4th place in the 1 lap along with Neve Wright in the standing triple jump. In the 2+2 Kirsten and Neve came 3rd.
