Under 11 Sportshall Championship
The U11 boys just missed out on medals on Sunday at the Sportshall Championship, coming fourth. The team had several top 3 finishes and finished the day with on a high winning their heat in the GrandPrix.
James Fenner continued Team Kennet’s success in the Triple Jump with a jump of 5.77m giving him first place. This was matched by Jack Pyke coming first in the high stepper with 13 seconds. Second place was taken by Ivan Chekmazov and Ethan Kuijten in the Paarlauf with 71.6sec (winning their heat by half a lap!)
The team got several third places between them, James in the 1 lap obstacle, Matthew Howard in the chest push and the team of James, Jack, Ivan and Ethan in the 4×1 sprint relay & overall in the Grand Prix.
The U11 girls came in 9th with an undersized team. That didn’t stop them putting in maximum effort, especially when Charlotte Morgan, Leilah Gaye, Sophie Byway and Georgina Johnston showed off their speed, agility and determination by winning the GrandPrix overall.
Georgina, in her first sportshall competition, took second place in the target throw. The speedbouncers Charlotte and Tillie Bell got 48 and 49 jumps giving them 3rd and 5th place. Sophie also came 4th in the chest push with 5.0m.
