13th/14th April UK Final Sport City Manchester.

Manchester UK final 14th April. 2019
Only 4 girls and 2 boys made it to Manchester Sport City for the UK final. With one athlete sadly injuring herself the day before at a league meeting and it was impossible to get a replacement at the last minute, the unfortunately Imogen Davis’s car broke down on the way so was unable to get there. Freya Jury’s car got a puncture on the way up but still made it, as did Nathanial Ryan’s Dad who also had car problems but managed to get there, but it did not bode well for the day!

It was decided that the 4 girls would still compete as a team. Freya Jury, Libby Turbutt, Georgia Baker and Jessie Sargeant. The girls did themselves proud coming 6th with 1008 points 274 points behind the winner Surrey. Last year Kent scored 1150 points to come 3rd (935 individual points and 95 for the paarlauf). This year just 4 girls scored 908 individual points plus 100 for the 4x100m relay. A fantastic score and one can only think what we could have done if we had been able to field a full team. Freya Jury came 4th in the individual all-rounder with 271pts she came 3rd in the speed bounce with 86. Georgia Baker came next with 234pts finishing 3rd in the vertical jump. Libby Turbutt scored 210 and Jessie Sargeant the youngest in the group scored 193.

Nathanial Ryan was invited as an individual to Manchester as his speed bounce was the best for the season around the UK, he bounced a great 89 to claim the bronze medal. William Jury was also invited as the top U13 boy in the speed bounce finishing 4th with 86. The first 3 places being tied with 88, William currently holds the U13 boy’s English Sportshall record with his 93 result from the regionals.

Well done to all those who made the National final and we look forward to the 2020 regionals.

Elizabeth & Janet Duffin Team Managers.

Regional Final Burgess Hill 3rd March 2019- U11 match

For the first time in many years the weather on the regional final day was sunny and not snowy. This meant that everyone managed to get to The Triangle Leisure Centre at Burgess Hill without too much trouble. For the first time the U11s and older age groups competed on the same day with the younger athletes in the morning and the older ones in the afternoon, it all seemed to work okay, but it meant a long day for those with children in two age groups taking part.

It was a fantastic day for the U11s with both the boys' and girls' teams winning team gold.

A few stumbles in the first relays got us off to a slow start but things improved through the morning. In the girls' team Elicia Lacey came 3rd in the foam javelin with 15m and 2nd in the standing triple jump with 6.38m although a possible mistake in the results means this might be upgraded to 1st. Elicia was also part of the winning grand prix team with Deborah Sujadje, Tilly Cunliff and Olivia Campbell who also finished 3rd in the soft javelin with 15m, Violet Maxted won the vertical jump with 56cm and Humairaa Rabbani took 2nd with 55cm.

Isabelle Amarty and Hannah Areeson were equal 1st in the balance test both managed the full time of 60 seconds. Tallulah Jago won the chest push with 7m, whilst Demi Wrangle came 5th in both the standing triple jump 5.98m and scored 10 points in the target throw, and Ella Thomas jumped 54 in the speed bounce to come 7th. Kitti Holroyd, Violet Maxted, Isabelle Amarty and Zaina Orenuga were part of the over and under relay team which came 2nd.

In the boys Callum James won the soft javelin (21m) and was 2nd in the vertical jump (50cm) with Maurice Roberts equal on the same score.   Oscar Heselton and Aaron Brown both came equal 1st in the balance test with 60 seconds.
