Three of Dorchester AC’s most talented sportshall stars have been selected for to represent Dorset in the South West Regional Sportshall final. The Under 11 athletes, Evie Travers, Seren Bull (pictured) and Milla Heathcote clinched their places for the event at Paignton through their outstanding performances at the Dorset County Championships at Canford School, Wimborne. 
 
Most competitors contested up to four events but Evie confined herself to just two, winning the speed bounce by a wide margin and coming within a hair’s breadth of taking the two-lap race in an identical time to the winner. 
 
Seren and Milla both spread their net wider, taking part in the maximum four events. Seren’s four included second in both the speed bounce and high stepper and third in the two-lap race. For her it is the second successive year she has been selected for the Dorset team. 
 
Milla was competing in her first year in the Under 11 age group. Her four fine performances included winning the target throw and coming third in the high stepper. 
 
The three girls were well backed up by two others, Jasmine Deakin, whose best was fourth in the triple jump, and newcomer, Ariyah Damon who missed out on a 1 lap bronze by the very narrowest of margins and also took fifth place in two of her chosen field events. 
 
The powerful squad of Evie, Seren, Milla and Jasmine then joined forces to take the gold medal in the obstacle relay, finishing a staggering four seconds ahead of their nearest rivals, Bournemouth AC. 
 
There was a Dorchester star in the Boys Under 11 competition too, in the form of Harry Knight. He entered four events, including some on both the track and the field. Showing his all-round ability, Harry finished in the top four in all of them, including 2nd in the speed bounce and 3rd in the 1 lap sprint. 
 
Dorchester’s final performer in the championships was Kobi Bray who was also competing in his first sportshall competition and can feel proud of his four finishes which were all in the top eight places. His most successful event was the standing long jump where he finished just four centimeters short of fourth position.
