Dorset Sportshall League 2008 - Match 3

Osprey Leisure Centre - Sunday 7 December 2008

The final match in the Dorset County Sporthall League took place yesterday (Sunday 7th December) at the Osprey Leisure Centre in Portland.

In the under 15 age group we had 2 athletes who had been able to compete at all the league matches and both were in good positions with Hannah in 3rd place and Adam in 4th place in the individual standings – all to play for in the final match.

Hannah saved her best performances to the last match storming to wins in both the standing long jump and shot putt and a good second place in the 2 lap race. This was enough to move her up to an outstanding 2nd place only 8 points behind the winner.

Adam showed some good improvement in the shot putt with a season’s best of 8.42, nearly 1 metre better that his first match performance. However, in this close fought competition, Adam’s final position was 6th just 22 points behind the winner.

Both Hannah and Adam are in the 1st year at this age group, which bodes well for next year.

In the under 13 age group the boys only managed to field a team of 3 with many athletes involved in other team sports on Sundays, and others injured or ill. In the team competition the Wasps dropped from 3rd to 4th, well behind the eventual winning team.

The girls, on the other hand, managed to hold on to their 3rd place after the final match. This is a great achievement given that a good proportion of their team is still only under 11.

Well done to everyone who competed yesterday, and in the other matches in the league, and thanks also to all the parents for all your support.

Steve Snook.
