Sportshall round 5 2018-19
Sunday 10 March was the final sportshall of the season.
Despite several 'regulars' being unable to attend we still had a great turnout of 24 athletes. The snow on the way home made me very happy that we were inside in the warmth despite the noise!
New club records
Huge congratulations to Oliver Thompson who set a new county record in the 2 lap with a time of 23.6 Congratulations to Freya Halsall too, who has set a new club record for the vertical jump, and the U13 obstacle relay team of Oliver Thompson, EJ Brown, Henry Manley and David Naylor who have set a new club record.
Results on the day
The results on the day ended up with our U11's in 4th place (above Banbury, Oxford and White Horse), our U13's in 4th place (above Banbury, Radley and White Horse) and our lone U15 boy (Samuel Naylor) giving us 4th place (above Radley, White Horse and Oxford -who admittedly didn't have any competitors-).
Results for the season
Unfortunately, the results overall for the whole season aren't quite so good, but we didn't come last! The U11's came 6th above White Horse, the U13's did come 4th above Banbury, Radley and White Horse and the U15 girls (I say girls, but like the boys there's one sole competitor for the U15's - Celena Appleby-Prince, so well done Celena!) came 5th above White Horse and Oxford (who didn't have any competitors) as did Samuel for the U15 boys (well done Samuel!)

A huge thank you to all the athletes for a brilliant season, it's lovely to see the team spirit that has grown over this season. Massive thanks also to the parents who give up their time to bring their athletes to take part and help with counting the speedbounce, special thanks to Naomi my speedbounce co-ordinator ( I wouldn't be able to do what I do without someone doing that job for me!) I hope to see you all again next season and hopefully some newcomers too. Don't forget the outdoor season is just about to start, so go and enjoy yourselves in the fresh air!
Big shout out to Benji Davys too (who left sportshall at the end of last season as he was too old!) who made a guest appearance at this last sportshall giving me a bit of a hand (and having a chat to the other team managers and officials!!) and running a non-scoring paarlauf with Samuel, so that he was able to do his final event.
See you all next season.
Fiona (Sportshall Team Manager)
