(12th Feb 2016) Boys Win Through To National Finals
Derbyshire’s U13 and U15 boys teams won their age groups at the East Midlands Regional Sportshall Finals at Grantham on 31st January. They now go on to contest the prestigious National Sportshall Finals in April. The U13 boys won by a very comfortable margin from the Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire & Rutland teams. They amassed seven individual wins from Elliot Archibold, Fran Higton, William Pullan, Stan Dickenson and Chris Turner and took two out of a possible four relays. At U15 William Collings finished in runner-up place in the all-rounder title, taking a win in 4 lap, second place in speed bounce and combined with Adam Berwick (himself the standing triple jump winner) to comfortably win the 8 lap paarlauf. It was an altogether closer affair in the U13 and U15 girls categories. Derbyshire’s U13 girls finished just twenty points shy of winners Leics & Rutland, whilst the U15 girls had only twenty points separating first, second and third teams overall, and had to be content with second place. Maximum points were earned by Lois Aitken(U13 4 lap), Lauren Hill (U15 vertical high jump) and Lily Naylor (U15 shot). The U11s teams progress no further than the regional rounds in this competition, and in this age group they were joined by teams from Lincolnshire and Northamptonshire. The Derbyshire girls team took the win from Leics & Rutland in yet another very close affair, with every athlete contributing to team points across eight relays and team field events. The U11 boys found the going altogether a tougher affair and finished third out of the five counties. Derbyshire Athletics wishes to thank all the team managers and officials who gave their time on the day. Over 60 athletes from all age group teams were selected from their performances at the Derbyshire Mini League series currently coming to a close on Sunday 14th Feb at the new Queens Park Sports Centre, Chesterfield. Presentations of league and age group trophies will be made at the end of the match. Mini League Cross Country
The third and final match in the league is on Saturday 13th Feb and is hosted by Derby AC at Moorways, Derby. Races for U11, U13 and U15 athletes start at 11am (U11s working through the age and gender groups). The overall team league winner will be decided at this match as will the individual medallists. Presentations will be made as soon after the final race as possible in the Moorways clubhouse.
2016 Cross Country Championships The Championships were held at Shipley Park and the recenet very wet weather added to the all-ready very tough course making the underfoot conditions extremely wet and muddy. All runners are to be congratulated for how they tackled the courses. A huge thank you too to the many members of Heanor RC, who hosted the meeting and provided a very well-marked cross country course, and to the many Officials who stuck to their tasks diligently. The results can be found under the Championships banner above for Cross Country 2016. For those who received an invitation to represent the county please return your letter by the deadline date. The county requests volunteers for Team Managers on Saturday 12th March at Cofton Park, Birmingham. In an ideal world we need a Team Manager for each age group and gender (that would be 10 in total) but we need at least 6 Team Managers some of whom could take responsibility for more than 1 team. If there are no volunteers the County will re-consider entering teams especially as there is a newly introduced entry fee of £10 per team for this year. (11th January)

Congratulations to the 18 boys who represented Derbyshire at the National Sportshall Finals in Manchester on April 16th and 17th. The boys joined ten other county teams from all corners of the UK to battle it out in the U13 and U15 events for individual and team honours. Only two medals came their way, both from the 8 lap paarlauf event that Derbyshire does have a knack of doing well in over the years. The U13 boys pairing of Elliott Archibold (High Peak AC) and Fran Higton-Durrant (AVEAC) had a dominant run for gold, while Oliver Dakin (Chesterfield AC) and William Collings (AVEAC) also made the podium with bronze in the U15 boys event. Fran narrowly missed a further medal, finishing fourth in the U13 4 lap race, as William took fifth also in the 4 lap in the U15 age group. William Pullen (AVEAC) scored highly for equal fifth in the U13 2 lap. Overall the U13 boys team finished in seventh place, while the U15 boys went two better for fifth, both out of eleven teams.
