The club had just the three athletes enter this year who had achieved the entry standards. In very poor weather conditions U17M William Trott was the only athlete to clear a height in Pole Vault and came away with the GOLD medal in 3.71m well done William; the weather deteriorated so much that by the time U15G Amy Beynon was ready to vault her event was cancelled! U15B Lewie Jones had a very busy and successful weekend competing in 3 throws coming away with a medal in all three, well done Lewie! 13.23m Shot for BRONZE, 41.00m Discus for GOLD and 50.52m Javelin for SILVER!!!
