Sportshall Report – 17 NOVEMber 2007

Wasps FOUND in Portland SportsHall

The second Dorset Indoor Sportshall league match took place on Saturday 17th November at the Osprey Leisure Centre in Portland.


Sadly, in the under 13 boys competition, we were unable to sustain our fine start to the league. This time we were only able to field a team of 5 athletes and managed to come 5th out of 6 teams. The Wasps are still in second place in the league; however, with only one match to go and over 100 points behind 1st place Poole AC it leaves us a lot of work to do to try and win the league. Let’s get a good turnout in the final match on 15th December at Canford and see what we can achieve!

The under 13 girls were also down on numbers from the first match, though they still managed to be placed 5th out of 8 teams. Overall they remain 5th but less than 40 points behind the team from Weymouth. A good turnout and performances at Canford could pull the team up to 4th.

The under 15 girls only just managed to field a complete team this time, and they had another titanic battle against Dorchester Hurricanes, losing out by  8.5 points (305.5 to 297). Overall the girls are still 2nd in the league, and a good turnout and strong performances in the final match could make for an exciting finish to the league.

We had no representatives in the under 15 boys competition.


The best performances on the day all came from the girls:

Under 13

Hannah Winton won both the 4 Lap and the Triple Jump (the latter by nearly 1 metre!)

TC Hardy and Phillippa James won the Paarlauf

Under 15

Abby Sandford won the 2 Lap, the Long Jump, and the Shot Putt


U13 Boys:

Jack Snook, Aaron McCoy, Liam Winton, Adam Collins, and Callum Kennedy

U13 Girls:

Hannah Winton, Katie Cook, Phillippa James, TC Hardy, and Kelly Snook

U15 Girls:

Abby Sandford, Sarah Jordan, Ellis Marples and Charlotte Brumpton


Once again our many thanks go to those unsung heroes – the parents.

Your support and enthusiasm for our athletes, giving up your spare time to help get your charges to competitions is much appreciated by the club and especially the team managers.
