Congratulations to Isaac in Year 10, Ella in Year 9 and Will in Year 10 who were selected to represent Warwickshire in the Sportshall indoor athletics West Midlands Regional Final which took place on Sunday 1 March. All three athletes belong to local athletics clubs and secured their places on the U15 Warwickshire team after winning events at county competitions.
Competing against teams from Shropshire, Hereford & Worcestershire and Birmingham, the Warwickshire U15 boys and girls teams (as well as the U13 girls) won their overall team events which was a great result.
Isaac won the gold medal in the U15 boys Standing Triple Jump as well as winning silver in the Shot Put. Ella won gold in the U15 girls Standing Long Jump and the Relay and came first in her 2 lap heat. Will won gold medals in the U15 boys Standing Long Jump and the 8 lap Paarlauf as well as silver in the U15 boys 4 lap race and bronze in the speedbounce competition. The highest individual points score in the U15 boys competition earned him the title of U15 Boys West Midlands Regional Champion for 2020.
As members of the winning teams, Ella, Will and Isaac will be competing in the Sportshall National Finals in Sheffield in April representing the West Midlands against other regional teams from across the UK. Well done to all three athletes and good luck for the nationals!Click here to return to the current newsletter
