Bradley Sumner also had two pbs to his name, in the shot put (4.97m, fifth) and the 100m (fifth, 16.4).

In the U15 girls Beth Barrett ran 14.6 in the 100m and 30.1 in the 200m. In the 75m hurdles she ran a pb time of 13.1 to come second. Erin McNulty came sixth in the long jump (3.10m) and fourth in the 800m (2.41.6).
