Horwich RMI Harriers – More Success in Sports Hall Competitions
U11s Fun in Athletics Sports Hall Intercounty Event
Sports City January 20th 2013
Following on from their success in representing Horwich RMI Harriers in the three Sports Hall Events of 2012, six of our U11 athletes were honored by being selected to represent Greater Manchester at the Sports Hall Fun in Athletics Event on January 20th at Sport City. The chosen athletes, Niamh Bowen, Sally Caldwell, Sophie Walton, Zac Blackwell, Isaac Parker and Jack Shingler, participated in a number of events representing their county including the Over and Under Relay, The Grand Prix, The Balance Beam as well as some of the more well known events such as Standing Long Jump, Standing Triple Jump and High Stepper. The event was a great chance for our athletes to compete as a team with athletes from across the county and against athletes from all over the North West (including The Isle of Man). At the end of the event we all had a good fun day with Greater Manchester Boys team coming 4th overall and the Girls team 3rd.
Well done to all those that took part and for representing your club and your county! Full results can be found at: http://www.sportshall.org/VTL/FIA2013.aspx
