The Spotshall regional final took place on February 11th 2018 at Meres Leisure Centre in Grantham.
Thirteen athletes across three age groups were selected from Saffron AC to join athletes from other clubs to represent Leicestershire and Rutland in a combined team. The results on the day were amazing with L&R winning the U11 girls and boys, U13 girls and boys and the U15 girls, the U15 boys also had a great competition narrowly missing out by only 1 point to come in second.
The L&R U15’s also achieved 1st and 3rd place in the individual allrounder girls and 2nd and 3rd in the individual allrounder boys.
3rd Place U15 girl Emily Buckler
3rd place U15 boy Daniel Kosmaczewski
The U13 boys and Girls and the U15 Girls will now go through to represent the East Midlands at the National final at Sports City in Manchester on the 14th and 15th of March.
The U15 Boys may still be in with a chance of going through to the final as highest scoring runners up.
