There were very good efforts in the sprints from Josh Parry, Ben Wooding and Jordan Layne, and in the middle distance events from Joe Aherne, Joe Cochrane, Will Perkin, and Kieran Gilfedder. The men’s 4 x 400m relay team of Jamie Lloyd, Dan Hunter, Callum Neal and Jordan Layne were a very good second in their race.
In the U17 men’s team, wins came for Josh Parry (200m), Tim Rogers (400m) Jonty Wager-Leigh (1500m) and Jack Blyth (3000m). They were backed up in the sprints by Josh Penhaligon, Adam Smith and Tom Conway and in the middle distance events by David Clark, Aidan Kingman, Sam Howell, and Dan Weathers. Fabian Everiss threw a 35m javelin and Kai McKenzie did his usual job of picking up useful points in high jump, triple jump and 100m hurdles. Again, the 4 x 400m relay team were second courtesy of Will Perkin, Jonty Wager-Leigh, Sam Howell and Tim Rogers.
The U17 and U20 women had good teams out and there were U20 B string wins for Hannah Thear (long jump), Hannah Shepard (400m), Amy Harris (800m) and the sprints were dealt with by Sophie Matthews, Lisa Fitzpatrick and Sarah Cross. Tash Taylor doubled up effectively in the U20 800m and 1500m to be second in both A string races.
There was an U17 A string win for Hannah Thear in the 800m and a B string win for Emma Delgado. Megan Styles, April Miller, Rachel Klima, Emily Smith, Fran Lacey, Claire Buttivant and Georgina Haley all made useful contributions.
