Written by Website   
Monday, 16 October 2017

Thanks to all the parents, officials and athletes for making the first match of the Sportshall Season start so well.  The full results of the match are on the Sportshall website at www.sportshall.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/North-West-League-Rd1-Widnes.pdf


The girls squad of Macey, Jess, Hanna, Mia, Martha, Ellen, Katie and Saffron scored well across all disciplines and the team placed 3rd with 168.5 points, just 1 point off the second placed spot.  Maximum points in the 2-lap and 4-lap races set the girls up well, as well as good scores across all the jumps and throws and a 2nd placed finish in the relay.

The U11s boys scored 142.5 points, but in their case this was just 1 point more than the team in third place so they placed 2nd overall.  Jack, Jacob, Charlie and Oliver were strong in all areas, and took the victory in the relay to put them in a strong position to try to achieve a place in the season end final.


Charlotte, Beth and Jasmine comprised the U13 girls team, and scored well between them with 62.5 points, but unfortunately a team of 3 found it difficult to accumulate large numbers of points to overhaul the other teams, and they placed 5th overall. 

There were also just three boys who could make it to the match, with Ben, Harry and Matthew giving it all to score 91 points and place 4th.

U13s is usually a strong age group for the club, so could all athletes and parents for this age group please support your teammates and make every effort to turn out for the next match as both squads still have good chances to make it through to the finals!


There were unfortunately no U15 boys from the club at this match, and with just 1 boy from all of the other clubs at this match an opportunity was missed to score well here!  Maybe next time?

However, the U15 girls squad of Millie, Libby, Maddy, Lydia and Izzy were close to taking the top spot of the teams, scoring 87 points - the top two teams were tied on 90!  With top marks in the 6 lap race, the girls squad are looking strong at this point in the season.

Next event

The next match in the League will also be at Kingsway on Sunday 12th November.  With some of the team members also running Cross Country on the Saturday, we need all athletes to support their teammates and get big teams out to score well!
