It’s a WAC
Sports:Hall League – 17 February 2013.
Wimborne AC are 2012/13 Dorset Sportshall League Champions for the under
13/11 Girls and Boys and the under 15 Boys!! That’s a great team result
we should all be very proud of.
girls’ Whizzkids team finished with 1170 points, beating Bournemouth
Belles who scored 1016 point. Our Whippets team also finished in 6th
place out of ten teams, showing our strength in depth with the under-11
boys’ Wasps team accumulated 1122 points beating Poole AC who had 1006.5
points in total. This team did especially well as many events were
filled with our younger, less experienced but very energetic under-11s,
when our older athletes were missing due to cross-country commitments.
under-15 boys also did exceptionally well, again beating Poole AC, by
some 100 points or more. This event is also an individual competition in
which Ross Crabbe finished in first place overall with 210 points
beating Shaun Bishop by just 7 points!!
Flavell, Shaun Bishop, Liam Winton and Ross Crabbe
all played their part in the under-15 boys Championship win
White was our only under-15 girl to compete in all three meetings,
something we need to work on for next year! Ellie did really well to
finish in 2nd place overall with 202 points.
our athletes won selection to represent Dorset in the Regional
Sports:Hall Championships. Sportshall can be really loud and often
chaotic but it is hoped that our athletes enjoyed the competition and
that they are now looking forward to competing in the forthcoming Track
& Field season. Details to follow shortly!!
third and final Dorset Sportshall League fixture took place at Canford
School over half term. Despite losing some key team members to half
term holiday events the standard of competition in the under-13 age
groups remained high. Wimborne AC took the opportunity to strengthen
their hold on the leagues winning the under 13 boys and girls
competitions and the under 15 boys. Poole AC won the under 15 girls
Charlotte Ayton (Wimborne) 23.5s again showed her power in out
sprinting Charlotte Sidaway (Bournemouth) in the 2 Lap. The
Bournemouth athlete however won the standing long jump with 2m07.
Natalie Foster of Poole Runners won the 4 lap in 53.4 and the ever
reliable Amelia Davis (Poole AC) won the 6 lap in 76.8. Becky Kent of
Wimborne won the triple jump with 6m02 and team mate Beth Riley won the
vertical jump with a score of 52. Jaimee Browne of Weymouth tied with
Danielle Tomblin of Wimborne with a score of 73 in the speed bounce

of over four metres in the shot. Poole Runners won the circuit relay
and Wimborne the sprint relay.

under-13 boys seem more able to multi-task than the girls and three were
double event winners. The impressive Jack Howlett of Poole AC won the 2
lap in 22.8 and the shot with 10.13. James Tufnall of Weymouth won the
4 lap in 47.7 and the vertical jump with a score of 57. Glenn Balfour

of North Dorset won the triple jump with 6m36 and Khai Locke-White of
Dorchester the speed bounce with an impressive 73. Bournemouth won the
circuit relay and Wimborne the sprint relay.
aggregate scores for the under-13 boys’ teams were:
turnout in the under-15 age group has been disappointing and organisers
will need to think about how the event is promoted in the future. This
didn’t stop Charlotte Offer (Poole AC) winning the individual
championship with 212 points, Ellie White of Wimborne was second with
202 points and Bobbie Joe Gannon of Poole AC third with 200.5.
