Dorset County Combined Events Championships

We had four athletes competing at the Combined Events Championships held at Millfield School in Somerset last weekend. The event includes championships for both Dorset and Somerset, and it was sad to see how few athletes were competing for the Dorset Championship in comparison with Somerset.

That said our athletes performed very well coming away with a string of PB performances.

Wimborne had three boys competing on the Saturday.

Adam Collins was in the minor boys Quadrathlon (100m, Shot Putt, Long Jump and 800m). Adam did PBs in all but the 800m finishing 7th out of 35 athletes, but more importantly, the 1st Dorset athlete and therefore Dorset County Champion!  

Matt Curtis and Jack Snook were in the Junior boys Pentathlon (80m Hurdles, Shot Putt, Long Jump, High Jump and 800m).

Matt put in 3 PB performances (80m Hurdles, Shot Putt and 800m) and achieved 9th place overall and 3rd in the Dorset Championships. This bodes well for next year when Matt will be in the same age group again.

Jack also put in some fine performances achieving PBs in all 5 events. He finished the competition just behind Matt in 10th place overall and 4th in the Dorset Championships. We suggest that he breaks his fingers more often if this is the result!

Sunday saw the Junior Girls Pentathlon take place. Hannah Winton was our representative in this competition and came away with PBs in the Hurdles, 800m and Shot Putt. Overall Hannah finished 10th and was 3rd in the Dorset Championships.

These were some great performances so early in the season, so it will be interesting to see how much further these athletes can improve over the next couple of months.

Well done everyone.
