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.
