Four competitors from Area 5 were invited to represent Wales and Borders at the Junior International Tetrathlon competition, which was held at Moreton Morrell College, Warwickshire, on June 5th and 6th 2021.
Throughout the lockdown Lana Booth (Cheshire Hunt North), has trained intensely and it certainly paid off! Lana, our Wales and Borders Girls Captain, came in 1st place out of a whopping class of 69 Junior Girls! She did fantastically well coming in 2nd place in the shoot (940 out of 1000), joint 3rd in the run, and 2nd in the swim. She topped this off with a clear ride! Well done Lana!!
It was Leah Lamb’s (Flint and Denbigh Hunt) first time competing at this level and she did so well, with a particularly good shoot (860).
Our two Junior Boys both had a fantastic weekend, with both placing in the top 10, out of 27 boys! Freddie James (East Cheshire) came in 5th place overall with an impressive shoot (900) and the 4th best swim in his class.
Harry Taylor (Cheshire Hunt South) was close behind in 8th place. Harry was one of only 8 boys to ride clear over a very technical cross-country course.
This year there was also an additional class for the 15 year olds who had unfortunately as a result of COVID, missed last years competition. Area 5 had 3 competitors eligible to take part.
Beatrice Taylor (Cheshire Hunt South) did brilliantly, coming in 2nd place out of the 16 girls, and achieving the best swim. She was only 91 points behind first place!
Archie Peffers (Waen-y-Llyn) had a great run (coming in 4th place) and swim (6th place). Our final competitor, Rufus Taylor (Cheshire Hunt South) had a superb swim, achieving 8th place overall.
Well done Area 5 competitors! You all did so well.
