Sportshall League (3)
The final Gtr. Manchester Sportshall League match at Sportscity saw the culmination of our best ever season in the league. Our U11 boy’s team retained their league title, whilst the U11, U13 and U15 girl’s teams all became league champions.
The U11 boy’s team of LEONARDO SCOTT, TORRIN LINDSEY, OLIVER PERRIN, MATTHEW YOUNG, TOM HOBSON, ERIC HEYWORTH and DANIEL HARRISON won the sprint relay and were runners up in the obstacle relay, whilst Leonardo won both sprint relays and Torrin was 3rd in the javelin. HARRY EDMUNDSON was an impressive winner of the boy’s U13 six lap event.
The U11 girl’s team of THEA BROWN, OLIVIA BUCHAN, CAITLIN Mc MANUS, ISABELLE BEAUMONT, GRACE EDMUNDSON and GRACE BOOTH were in great form in the sprint and relay obstacle events, whilst Olivia won the speed bounce and Thea placed 3rd in both sprint events.
The U13 girl’s team of MELISSA BOOTH, SOFIJA DRAGISIC-WOOD, HERMIONE MASON, KIA CLARKSON, ELLIE COLQUHOUN-LYNN and LIBBY HILL were all in fantastic form with Melissa, Sofija, Hermione, Kia and Ellie all winning individual events, whilst the relay team finished 2nd. A big thank you to Kia and Libby who turned out at very short notice to ensure that we completed a team and won the league. Libby had already completed a hard training session at Crossford before her phone rang asking her to make up the team.
The U15 girl’s team of POPPY GLASBY-SEDDON, SCARLETT WHITTAKER, SOPHIE TILLEY, ELLA MARSHALL, LAURA CREAMER, TIGGY FALLOON and EILEEN BOYUNGA gets better with each match. Scarlett and Sophie both won their shot-putt events with PB’s whilst Poppy performed well in the sprint events. Laura finished 3rd in the 6-lap event in her league debut and is another club member who turned out at short notice to ensure team success.
A big thanks to team managers, coaches, officials, parents and athletes making this our most successful Gtr. Manchester Sportshall League season.
