Shropshire Sportshall League
The first meeting of the Shropshire Sportshall league was held at Bridgnorth Leisure Centre.
Unfortunately there was a disappointing turn out of Shrewsbury athletes, especially in the Under 11 Boys age group where only two boys competed on the day.
Leading Shrewsbury AC results were as follows:
Under 11 Girls: Jodie Adams – 1st 4 Laps (A) 48.9 secs. Romy Payne – 5th Speed Bounce. Team 4th overall – 40.5 points.
Under 11 Boys: William Davies – 3rd 4 Laps (A) 49.4 secs, 4th Standing Triple Jump 5m 32cms. Team 5th overall – 17 points.
Under 13 Girls: Hollie Williamson – 1st High Jump 1m 45cms, 1st Standing Long Jump 2m 40cms. Bethany Davies – 2nd High Jump 1m 35cms.
Jessica Clarkson – 1st 4 laps (A) 45.8secs. 4x2 Relay team – 1st.
Team finished second overall with 69 points, only 2 points behind Telford, despite being one athlete short. With a full team in the next three fixtures the Shrewsbury Under 13 Girls should be in contention for the age group trophy.
Under 13 Boys: James Woollam – 4th Standing Long Jump 2m 15cms.
Joe Morris – 5th Standing Long Jump 2m 12cms.
Team 3rd overall – 30 points.
Under 15 Girls: Amy Bickle – 1st Standing Long Jump 2m 32cms.
Daisy Barnes – 2nd 2 Laps (A) 22.9secs, 2nd 4 Laps (A) 47.5secs.
Team 2nd overall – 39 points.
The next league meeting is on 6th November at Much Wenlock when the Shrewsbury Team Managers are hoping for a more encouraging turn out of young athletes.
