SPORTSHALL LEAGUE ROUND 1
Sale are the current Greater Manchester Sportshall champions in the U11 boys and girls age-groups. On Sunday at Sportcity, the club started the defence of their titles against opposition from twelve teams from all over the county, in a match featuring competition for U11, U13 and U15 athletes in a range of events; Speed-bounce, obstacle races, relays, vertical jump, standing jumps, shot, javelin, parlauf and running events.
We were dominant in the shot with victories from SOPHIE TILLEY, HANNAH BLOOD, JENNA CARR and NATHAN BOOTH. The running events featured some fine sprinting from MELISSA BOOTH and ELLA WILSON whilst TOM BOYD, HOLLY HARRISON and ISABELLE BURKE were in excellent form in the longer distance events.
Other team members to perform with great credit to the club were JACK ALTOFT, MCKENNA BRADSHAW, HARRY EDMUNDSON, GRACE EDMUNDSON, ELEANOR BOYD, OLIVIA BUCHAN, CHARLOTTE BUCHAN, PRINCE AYENI, KACEE AYENI, SARA BAYAN, ELLIE COLQUHOUN-LYNN, TIGGY FALLON, IZZY LAMB, ELLIE HALL, MARIA GOLDERICK, ELLA MARSHALL, AMBER THOMS, SOFIJA DRAGISIC-WOOD, SARA IACIO and L. SCOTT.
A special mention to NIAMH COYNE who fell in her race but got up; dusted herself down; caught the rest and scored valuable points for the club. The next round is at Sportcity on Sunday November 15th and we will need more boys to turn out and represent the club is we are to challenge for the overall league title which we lost by one point last year.
It’s worth reminding parents, coaches and photographers that the next club Harrier magazine, which will be out next March, will particularly feature ‘teams’ rather than individuals so please take ‘team’ photos if possible and send to firstname.lastname@example.org asap after the event. Thank you.
