The final Sportshall League meet was at Sportcity on Sunday and Sale Harriers can be well pleased with four teams finishing in the first three in their age group with strong opposition from twelve other clubs.
Pride of place must go to the U11 boys who won the league title by a big margin. In the final match they were particularly impressive in the relay events with well drilled squads winning all three relays. Congratulations to the 8-boy squad of JACK ALTOFT, MACKENNA BRADSHAW, HARRY EDMUNDSON, TOM BOYD, LEONARDO SCOTT, PRINCE AYENI, HARVEY DEVENPORT and JACKSON WARD.
The U11 girl’s team of LUCY HERBERT, HERMIONE MASON, OLIVIA BUCHAN and ISABELLE BURKE were also relay winners in the obstacle event and with the addition of KACEE AYENI, ELEANOR BOYD, GRACE EDMUNDSON and DIDS PARISH scored well across all disciplines.
A large squad of U13 girls represented the club with tremendous enthusiasm and team spirit. ELLA MARSHALL and SARA BAYAN achieved PB’s in the shot whilst SCARLETT WHITTAKER won the event with a PB of 8.40m. SOFIJA DRAJISIC-WOOD scored an impressive 76 in the speed bounce and teamed up with MELISSA BOOTH, MEGAN GREENWAY and NIAMH COYNE to make up a speedy relay team. The rest of this impressive squad was made up of HOLLY HARRISON, MARIE COLDRICK, ELLIE COLQUHOUN-LYNN, ELLIE HILL, CHARLOTTE BUCHAN and AMBER THOMS who all contributed to the team’s success.
Our star performer was U15 NATHAN BOOTH with PB’s of 9.24m in the shot and 6.78m in the standing triple jump.
Others who competed with great credit for the club were JENNA CARR, SARA INACIO, HARRY BOYD and JOHN LEWIS.
The next Sportshall fixture is the County Championships on January 24th. The usual ‘Thank You’ must go to the team managers, officials, coaches and parents who made this another successful event.
