Sportshall U11 Championships

Eleven Juniors went to Eton on Sunday to compete in the Berkshire U11 Sportshall Championships. Our girls came home celebrating winning Silver medals, with a host of outstanding performances.

Our highest placed individuals for the girls were Katie Pennicott in 2nd place in the Speedbounce with 53 jumps. Lyla Goodwin 2nd in the Long Jump with 1.98m, closely followed by Grace Wotherspoon in 3rd with 1.93m. Harriet Gibson took 3rd in the target throw with 6 points and Kirsten Fraser 4th in the Triple Jump with 5.50m.

As a team Katie, Grace, Catherine Jones and Neve Wright came 2nd in the 4×1 lap relay. The final event saw Lyla, Katie, Kirsten and Harriet charge through the Grand Prix, winning their heat and taking 2nd overall.

The 2 older U11 Boys (who only joined Team Kennet in October!) were superb in their individual events with Andrew Barker securing 2nd in the Foam Javellin with 16.75m and Ben Fisher taking 2nd with 50 jumps in the speedbounce. Our younger U11’s James Fenner and William Appleby completed the team and showed massive potential, ready to challenge for top spot next year.

The next event is the U13 & U15 Berkshire Championships on January 14th 2018
