Kyan Upsall finished 8th in the 13 years’ 800m and has shown that the longer distances suit him, finishing 15th in the 14 years’ 1500m and 15th in the 15 years’ 3000m (there is no 13 years’ division for 1500m or 3000m).

Willow Neal finished 5th in the 16 years’ 400m and 6th in the 16 years’ triple jump and then achieved a silver medal as part of the North Coast 4x400m relay team. 

Yasmin Ball finished 9th in the 12 years’ 200m and Sophie Keough 10th in the 16 years’ 200m, both narrowly missing the final.
