Sale, as the current Greater Manchester Sportshall champions in the U11 boys and girls age-groups, started the defence of their titles against opposition from ten 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.
In the U11 boys LEONARDO SCOTT won the one lap race and performed well in the javelin whilst TORIN LINDSEY was first in the three lap race. Torin and Leonardo teamed up with OLIVER PERRIN, MATTHEW YOUNG, DANIEL HARRISON and TOM HOBSON to win the sprint and obstacles relays. ERIC HEYWORTH made an impressive debut in winning his sprint race. MACKENA BRADSHAW won the U13 shot with a PB whilst JACKSON WARD was 2nd in the four lap event.
In the U11 events THEA BROWN, ELLA GILLESPIE, SHONA WILKINSON, OLIVIA BUCHAN, CAITHLIN McMANUS and SIENNA JADE-PARK all had individual victories in running events whilst Ella and LUCIE HERBERT jumped impressive PB’s in the vertical jump. ISABELLE BEAUMONT, GRACE EDMUNDSON, ELEANOR BOYD, GRACE BOOTH, HOLLY ABBOTT and ELIN PARRY also performed well in their events.
The U13 girls were in dominant form with the dream team of MELISSA BOOTH, SOFIJA DRAGISIC-WOOD, HERMIONE MASON, ESME ALDRIDGE, JASMINE RICHARDSON, OSA ODEMWENGIE, DIDS PARISH, KIA CLARKSON and OLIVIA BROWN. Kia made a spectacular debut which was notable both for her win over four laps and her hair-do. (Well worth the effort!). HERMIONE MASON was a comfortable winner over six laps with DIDS PARISH in third place. PS’s were set by Sofija in the speed bounce and by Osa and Jasmine in the shot. Melissa, Olivia, Osa and Jasmine ran well in the sprint events and made up the relay team
The U15 team of MEGAN GREENWAY, ELLA WILSON, TIGGY FALLOON, GILEEN BOYUNGA and CHARLOTTE BUCHAN performed well but will need a few more athletes if they are to challenge for the team title.
A big thanks to the management team of CHRISTINE TYRER, LAURA PEARSON and STEVE BOOTH. The next match is Sunday 13th November at Sportcity.
