Outside of the qualifiers it was another case of so near so far for the boys U13 team. After finishing one place out of qualifying last year the boys again ended the three matches in fourth spot. Fantastic performances throughout and given the competition it was a great effort. Also just missing out on qualifying was the Women’s U20 Team, also finishing in 4th. It was a case of having the quality but being short of numbers this time round.
Having competed in the first match with only one athlete, Alastair Scott, the Under 15 Boys were never going to qualify. They did see a dramatic improvement match on match though. Match one the team finished 20th, match 2 was 8th and the final match saw them up in 5th.
The Under 15 Girls produced a fantastic performance in Match 1, finishing the day in first spot, showing the talent in the team. Despite some great individual performances in the team, they were not able to hold onto the qualifying spot and finished in 6th. The U17 Boys team struggled throughout the competition to get anywhere near a full team out. Again there were a number of fine individual performances, but empty events throughout the three matches left the team down in 15th.
The Under 11s competition was a slightly different format and again we did not always cover the events. However it was great to see some of the younger, and newer, athletes competing. Competing over the three matches were Abbie Foster, Eloise Scott, Morven Brown, Callan Innes, Harry Miller and Ben Harley.
