Elsewhere in the U15 age groups, Rueben Leyland was 7th in the 300 (38.24s), while Emma Horsey and Megan Coffey contested the 800m, Emma taking 5th place with a PB 2:17.38. Ross Hurst ran 5:02.64 for 15th in the 1500, while Georgia Russell had a very busy day, just missing bronze in the shot put wih 9.61m (PB), and throwing 19.79m in the discus and another PB 29.08m in the hammer.
