William Moore, in his last year as an under-13, had an excellent day, he ran in the 4x1 and 4x2 relays. In the shot William threw 11.20m which was a massive personal best and secured him the gold medal.

The under-13 boys team finished second overall, beaten by just 14 points.

The under-15 boys also finished second but the under-13 and under-15 girls teams both finished first and so will be travelling to Birmingham in April to compete at the National Sportshall finals.
