SHROPSHIRE SPORTSHALL LEAGUE
There was an improved turn out of Shrewsbury athletes at the second meeting of the Shropshire Sportshall League held at Much Wenlock Leisure Centre.
The club was able to field full teams in the Under 11 Girls and Boys and the Under 13 Girls age groups. Unfortunately James Yewbrey was the only club representative in the Under 13 Boys age group and the club only had two Under 15 girls, Daisy Barnes and Amy Bickle. However, all three competed well and gained valuable points for the overall Shrewsbury score.
There were some notable performances from individual Shrewsbury athletes.
Jodie Adams was second in the Under 11 Girls Standing Long Jump 1m 75cms.
Josh Lewis made an impressive debut for the club, winning the 2 laps(A) race in 25.3secs and William Davies ran very well for second place in the Under 11 Boys 2 Laps Hurdles (A) 28.1 secs. William and Harry Bower finished second in the 6 laps Paarlauf.
The Shrewsbury Under 13 Girls performed well as a team and were narrowly beaten on the day by Telford.
Hollie Williamson won both her field events very comfortably – Vertical Jump 52cms and Standing Triple Jump 6m 98cms. She also anchored the 4x2 Relay team to an exciting victory.
Jessica Clarkson made it a 1-2 for Shrewsbury, finishing in second place in the Standing Triple Jump 6m 04cms.
James Yewbrey jumped an impressive 6m 42cms for second place in the Under 13 Boys Standing Triple Jump and ran a fast time of 23.8secs for third place in the 2 laps (A) race.
Daisy Barnes and Amy Bickle took first and second places respectively in the Under 15 Girls Shot with throws of 6m 75cms and 6m 48cms. Amy won the 2 laps (B) race in a time of 23.8secs.
Overall team results for Shrewsbury were:
Under 11 Girls 4th, Under 11 Boys 3rd, Under 13 Girls 2nd, Under 13 Boys 3rd and Under 15 Girls 3rd.
The club finished in an encouraging 3rd place overall behind Telford and Wenlock. The next league meeting will be in January.
