Dorset County Sportshall Championships 2009

The county championships for Indoor Sportshall took place at Canford School on Saturday 24th January 2009 and the Wimborne Athletes that competed came away with a number of podium (1st, 2nd or 3rd) performances.

Under 11s

In the Sportshall league there is no separate age category for the under 11s, so until the county championships they have to compete with the under 13s. Wimborne had a large number of athletes in the under 11 age group and they all performed really well on Saturday. Pick of the performances were:

County Champions

Harry George (4 Lap)
Jordan Carter (Vertical Jump)

County Silver

Jordan Carter (2 Lap)
Harry George (Speed Bounce)
Alfie Beddow, Jordan Carter, Matt Fall, Harry George (Circuit Relay)
Phoebe O’Mahoney (Vertical Jump)

County Bronze

Matt Fall (4 Lap)
Kelly O’Mahoney (Long Jump)
Kelly O’Mahoney (6 Lap (U13 Event))
Abbie Hine, Hope Gough, Pippa Hine, Phoebe O’Mahoney (Circuit Relay)

Under 13s 

We were a bit sparse in the under 13 age category, but it was a case of quality over quantity as our athletes performances showed. Again the best performances are listed below:

County Champions

Mathew Curtis (High Jump)
Sam Lucas (Vertical Jump)
Abbie Card (High Jump)

County Bronze

Mathew Curtis (2 Lap)
Liam Winton, Sam Neill, Sam Lucas, Mathew Curtis (4x2 Lap Relay)
Abbie Card (2 Lap)
TC Hardy (Triple Jump)

Under 15s

Finally we come to the under 15 age group. Wimborne fielded no boys in this age group, however the Wimborne flag was held high by Hannah Winton in the girls competition:

County Champion

Hannah Winton (Long Jump)

County Silver

Hannah Winton (2 Lap)
Hannah Winton (Shot Putt)

Overall Hannah’s performances placed her in 3rd place in the Grand Prix competition – a great performance in her first year in this age group.

Well done to all our athletes that competed, and a big thanks to all the parents (taxi drivers) for their support and encouragement.

Also good luck to all the Wimborne athletes that, as a result of their performances in both the league and the county championships, have been selected to represent Dorset in the Regional Sportshall Finals in Torbay.
