On Sunday 10th December Maidenhead U11 Athletes attended the County Sportshall match at TVAC. Snowy weather made driving difficult but all our athletes who said they would attend did attend - thanks to their parents who braved the weather and brought their children.
The U11 boys team have made history as it’s the first time an U11 boys team have won medals at Sportshall for Maidenhead.
U11 Boys (Blue Team) 2nd (Silver Medallists)
U11 Girls (Blue Team) 4th (narrowly missing a bronze medal)
U11 Girls (Red Team) 12th (unable to compete in all races as incomplete team)
The U11 girls came so close, yet so far. The team, ravaged through injury and sickness, still absolutely smashed it on the track and missed out on the podium by a whisker. Maddie Sturt triumphed in the 1 Lap Obstacle; Maddie Sturt and Tamzin Bellamy were 1st in the 1 + 1 Lap; the 4x1 Lap Relay team (Tamzin, Maddie, Eleanor Dries and Estella Dhandra) were top of the podium (again!) and the 4x1 Hurdle team came a close second. There were one or two notable performances in the field as well: Tamzin Bellamy was 1st in Speed Bounce with Maddie Sturt coming 4th; and Tamzin Bellamy ws also 2nd in Standing Triple Jump. Shout out to Ruby Dale who achieved an outstanding PB and came 2nd in Javelin. There were some great performances, a sprinkling of PBs, and some fearsome team spirit and invaluable vocal support from Amelie Heavyside, Alannah Ryder, Lily Runnicles, Olivia Churchill Browne and Dylan Garrad. The match ended with fiercely proud coaches but very disappointed girls but their time will come.
The whole team was outstanding - a credit to the club. A few outstanding performances are detailed below, but also a big well done to Connor Wilcox and William Wingrove for their efforts.
Jack Britton was 1st in the 1+1 Lap, 1st in the 1 Lap Obstacle, 1st in the 4x1 Relay, 1st in the 4x1 Hurdle Relay, 2nd in the Standing Triple Jump and 2nd in the Hi Stepper
Callum Presnail was 1st in the 1+1 Lap, 2nd in the 1 Lap Obstacle, 1st in the 4x1 relay, 1st in the 4x1 Hurdle Relay, 2nd in Long Jump and 3rd in Hi Stepper
