Day 1 saw three of our athletes taking part in the 60m

Phillip Clark U20 and Matthew Edson U17 (coach- Mike Cook) both ran good races and were just 0.01 second off their P. B’s

Ava Jones U15 (coach – Veronica Boden) got through the heats and semi-final to equal her PB in the final.

Ava Jones returned in the 200m and recorded another PB in the event and won Silver in the Final
