Four of the club's 6 squads had successfully qualified for the NW Sportshall League Finals on Sunday, and everyone who was able to turn out in the U11 and U15 teams put in strong performances.

Under 11s

The Under 11s meeting took place in the morning with the boys and girls competing at events they'd mastered during the league, as well as some new events which are reserved for the finals.

For the girls, the team of Hannah Martin, Sophie Wignal, Kate Shaw, Jessie McCleana and Elin Brooks took part in the individual races first of all, before moving onto the field events. The team finished fifth overall, with the larger turnouts from other teams being decisive. But with strong individual performances, including 1st place for Sophie in the foam javelin, and 3rd place for Jessie in the chest push, they can all be very proud of their performances.

The boys team comprised 6 athletes, Lewis Wilson, Kai Cairns, Charlie Larkin, Jacob Fitsimon, Charlie Ashbrook and Luke Simpson. Again up against large squads, the boys took 4th place overall. Lewis placed 1st in the vertical jump, Jacob was third in standing triple jump and a four-man team took on the Under and Over relay and took 3rd place.

Under 15s

The afternoon session for U13s and U15s was another busy session, though with no club U13 squads making it to the final it was up to the U15 teams to represent the club and also compete for individual medals which are awarded in the U15 category only.

The girls squad comprised Chloe Lea, Maddy Rowland, Libby Acton, Millie Sayers and Izzy Hurst and again the size of the other squads outweighed good individual performances from our athletes. Millie was able to take away a bronze medal for her performance in the vertical jump, and the team took 2nd place in the 4x1 lap relays whilst the team overall placed 5th.

Due to illness, the U15 boys team comprised just one athlete - Aidan Larkin. Proving that it is all about the taking part, and with small numbers from the other clubs, Aidan was clearly delighted to be able to take away 4 individual medals (3 bronze and 1 silver) for his performances across the 4 and 6 lap races, triple jump and shot. And to cap off a fine day, Aidan's performances resulted in the U15 boys team finishing in 4th place, beating Crewe & Nantwich into 5th!
