Leicester & Rutland Sportshall League Oct 9th

This was the first of the Leicester & Rutland Sportshall League for U11/U13/U15 and the team finished in 2nd place.

The overall effort of the U15 boys was fantastic with all of them finishing 1st in all of the events and finishing 1st overall. Each one deserves a mention so I will highlight some of their performances:

Eric Bekoe 8 lap race 1.38.5

Sypho Byron 4 lap race 48.1

James Sutton 2 lap race 23.3

For many of the U11 this was their first competition and understandably many of them were a little nervous about this but they all put in 150% effort to finish in 2nd place. Here are some of their excellent results:

Jack Godwin 1st Speed Bound

Daniel Earl 2nd Long Jump

Kitty Joseph Blackler Standing Triple Jump a fantastic 5.08m

Grace Coleman Chest Push 4.75m

There was also a PB for Joseph Earl (U13) in the shot of 7.05m.

As I said earlier there were some fantastic performances and if I was able to give awards to the athletes of the match they would go to Eric for his standing long jump of 2.31m and Taisha Gregory-Thompson for her standing triple jump of 6.46 and the vertical jump of 62m.

Overall results for match 1:

U11 Girls 2nd
U11 Boys 1st
U13 Girls 3nd
U13 Boys 3rd
U15 Girls 2nd
U15 Boys 1st

I should like to congratulate all the athletes who took part and encourage other athletes to join us for the next meeting on 13th November.
