Sports:Hall 2011/2012 – Our most successful season yet!

Paula Hine reports.

Wimborne AC's most successful Sports:Hall season yet came to a head on 12th February at Canford School.

As winners in both league matches prior to this date, Wimborne's under-13 girls’ team had a head start coming into this final match, which was unusually combined with the County Championships this year. This buffer proved to be crucial. It was always going to be close, especially with Wimborne missing three key athletes from their Whizzkids team due to holidays and injuries. Thankfully the girls put in some great performances and their commitment, teamwork and determination to succeed paid off. The Whizzkids (A) Team, although not winners on the day scored sufficient points to make them overall league winners, beating Bournemouth AC by some 100 points. This is a magnificent performance for a small club like ours.

The Whizzkids were supported by a younger less experienced team, the Whippetts, who finished fifth out of eight teams. This shows what strength in depth the club is now building, with a total of some 25 girls having competed for us this season.

The boys’ team was lacking in numbers and therefore struggled to cover all the events. An area we hope to improve on as a club next season. However, the athletes who took part put in some outstanding performances and some are going on to represent Dorset in the regional finals. Well done boys!
