The local club sent a 30-strong squad to the recent event at Cambridge University Indoor Sports Centre and half of their athletes earned the right to represent the county next year.

They enjoyed individual and team success in the Under 13 girls category where Willow Bedding (8.54m) and Tamzin Digpal-Race (8.37m) earned a one-two in the shot-putt.

Moria Howard added a victory in the speed bounce event before all three girls teamed up with Tolu Akinkuolie to win the circuit relay. Bedding and Elizabeth Scott also triumphed in the paarlauf relay.

Other successes came in the Under 11 Girls category where Hollie Baynes completed an honours double in the vertical jump and the chest press.
