Sportshall Athletics National Championships 22nd and 23rd April

 A Message from Sharon Smith, the Under 15 and Under 13 Girls' Team Manager

Hi everyone,
Just wanted to say a huge thank you to you all for the performances yesterday. 8th place out of 11 teams and put that in perspective you were 8th place out of the whole of the country. A fabulous achievement.
We had an up and down day but one of the highlights was Molly (Palmer) achieving a gold medal in the 2 lap race. She also came 7th place in the individual all rounder out of 67 athletes so amazing performance, well done Molly.
All the results are now on the Sportshall website.
Thank you very much to Ellie (Haynes) , Lydia (Bonshor) and Naomi (Wilbram) who have competed in their last ever Sportshall competition. You have been super competitors over the years and I hope you've enjoyed every moment of it and can now inspire younger athletes at your clubs to take part. I wish you all the best in your future careers in athletics or other sports.
Thank you also to all the parents for your support to the athletes and myself. Without you we couldn't take part in these events as you are chief taxi drivers 😉
Amazing day today (Sunday). 2 individual medals (silver for Lexie Mcloughlin in the 6 lap and bronze for Emily Buckler in the 2 lap) 
Some great PB's and the whole team came a fantastic 5th place out of 11 teams.
