Review of 2013 by Mrs Sollis:
This year has once again been a very successful year for the West Kent Sevenoaks Tetrathletes. 22 children took part over the course of the year. A few of these were competing for the first time and a few were old timers. At the early East Kent triathlon results were in the Easter Newsletter. We then headed to Ardingly for the Old Surrey & Burstow event in March. Once again a fabulous set of results with the Mini boys team winning, with Ed winning individually Oli Hill again coming 2nd, Kate Moss 3rd Individually. and Zoe and Abi shooting for the first time with fabulous scores of 800 and 780.
Our next outing was to Delmonden on 1st June a fabulous sunny day, Max won his class (I’ve promised not to mention he was the only entry) but he did shoot run and swim well, and jumped a lovely clear round. Kate Burgess was 2nd in the Mini girls (winning the run as usual) and a great clear XC for the first time. Oli Hill was 2nd again so close to his arch rival (and good friend) from East Kent. Zoe and Abi were 3rd and 4threspectively in the Mini Mini girls. The U8 classes were the best entries of the day and our boys did very well Harry 2nd, Edward 3rd and Sebastian 4th. Our girls were great too Katie C 2nd, Darcy Rook 3rd and C Bailey 6th.
We then moved on the Eridge, which sadly due to lack of entries was changed to Show jumping rather that Cross country and meant it could no longer be counted for the Mini and Junior league scores. This was disappointing as the course at Mayfield is lovely. Max again won his class (there were some other entries this time!!) Oli Hill was 2nd again!! the Mini Mini girls team of Abi, Zoe and Katie took 2nd place with individual places 5th, 7th and 10th. Our U8 girls team of Poppy Humfrey, Charlie Bailey and Lara Bailey were 4th with Edward and Harry competing individually in 2ndand 6th.
Then the big one AREA 11&13 at Bonfleur. Only four entries from WKS. Max was 4th in the junior boys. Oli Hill raised his game and giving him his first win of the year. Katie B won her run again but unfortunately due to logistics couldn’t ride putting her out of the placings, and Zoe competing for the first time at area was a creditable 13th (5th in the shoot).
Only the Scotts ventured back to Delmonden for a 2nd time and were rewarded by a win each, with Harry winning the run and Abi winning the shoot with an amazing 960!!
We then headed to Carewell Farm where the mini boys team of Ed, Ben and Michael were once again victorous with Ed winning individually too and Ben 4th winning the run. Kate M also won the mini girls (makes for a nice journey home). In the U8 Katie C was 6th and Darcy 4th, and in the mini mini girls Zoe was 7th.
Our final event of the year was back at East Kent where it had all started. Once again the Mini boys team of Ed, Michael and Ben won. With Ed keeping his unbeaten record by winning individually again. Ben was 3rdand Michael 5th. The mini girls team of Megan, Juliette and Kate were 3rdwith Kate 6th individually. Oli once again won his class with his best shoot ever of 920. New boy Jack Pullen was a very creditable 4th at his first event. Zoe and Katie C were 10th and 11th in the Mini Mini girls, a great shoot from Zoe of 880. The U8 entrants were Edward Lindsay 7th and Iona not placed but a great run against some much bigger children. Max was 3rdwith another great shoot of 880.
