Fantastic Flint and Denbigh

DSC_0138At the One Day Tetrathlon April 26th in Mostyn, Flint and Denbigh Tetrathletes lead the field. Entries were not huge – just seven teams – but Flint and Denbigh took first and second places in the team competition.  Our members were on top form and there were many personal bests achieved – Scarlett knocked 10 seconds off her run, Ben swam 7 lengths and 2 m., Meg W, Eloise and Huw all had swim PB’s. Leah had run and swim PB’s and although only six – had a go at the jumping all on her own. Jake V-Thomas competed in his first Tet since he was about 9 years old.  He scored a respectable 3617 and can’t wait to do the next one !

The winning team members were Ceri and Huw Jones, Mia and Neisha Roberts.

Second placed team was Meg Woodcock, Ben Read, Madeline Maher and Hermione Williams. Hermione had a clear round on her new pony.

We had 13 F and D members competing and they ALL came home with a rosette/ medal or two! Some notable achievements were Neisha who won her class and had top shoot, run and swim medals. WOW!   Mia was 2nd in her class and had the run medal. Orlagh Toner had the top shoot medal in her class and actually had the highest shoot score of the whole competition – 920. That is nine bulls out of a possible ten.  Ben Read won the Junior boys and had the top shoot and run medals.  Madeline won the Junior Girls and had the top shoot, run and swim medals.

Next competition is May 17th  and 18th  at Plas Ucha, Glan Conwy and is combined with a Hunter Trial.  All classes – Lead rein to Seniors. Entries in the Tet will automatically be entered in the Hunter Trial.
