Sportshall League Match 3 – 28th January 2018
For the final sportshall league match we took 19 athletes to Eton.
Our best team result came from the U11 girls blue team, who won their second bronze medals of the season. A mix up in the timings on the speedbounce, which meant the girls had to jump for 30 seconds instead of 20, didn’t phase Lyla Goodwin (80 jumps) and Katie Pennicott (76 jumps) as they claimed 1st and 3rd places. Lyla also placed second in Long Jump with 1.94m.
The team had several 4th places in individual events. Katie Pennicott in Foam Javelin with 11.75m, Harriet Gibson in Balance Beam (56sec) and Target throw (6pts). The team, including Neve Wright placed 4 in the 4×1 relay and 6th in the Paarlauf.
For the first time this season we took a second U11 girls team, The two girls had a fantastic first ever match with Alanna Smith winning the foam Javelin with 12.50m and Tilly Sideso matching Harriet in 4th place on the Balance Beam with 6 pts.
The U11 Boys team placed 8th out of 15th overall. The highlights were Theo winning the target throw with 9 pts and Ben coming 3rd in the speedbounce with 53 jumps.
The U13 and 15 teams have kept going all season with reduced numbers, but have had some fantastic individual results. In this match Aimee Dickson (U13) won the speedbounce with 88 jumps, Pheobe Hoaen (U15) won the overhead throw with 6.5m and Sophie Weadon came 4th in the shot putt with 8.78m.
For the boys Harry Booker and Oliver Gregory (U15) continued to dominate the Shot taking 2nd (11.28m) and 3rd (9.88m). The same pairing also managed 4th place in the paarlauf with 90.1s. Oliver Bazin completed the U15 boys team with 5.25m in the overhead throw giving him 4th place.
With the season at an end we have had 3 athletes (U15 – Harry Booker, U11 – Grace Wotherspoon and Lyla Goodwin) selected to compete for Berkshire at the upcoming Regional Final and wish them the best of luck.
