Harry Coppell (John Mitchell) won the pole vault easily with 4.83m.

In the 100m hurdles, Kertis Beswick (Lorna Boothe) was unlucky the wind was just over the limit at 2.2mps as his winning 12.75 was much quicker than his PB and Power of Ten ranking topping performance.

Owin Sinclair set a championship best in the under 15 100m with 10.83, though the wind was over the limits with 2.2mps.

He just lost out on an unique treble though despite a 35.85 PB in the 300m as he was just beaten by Matthew Pagan's 35.74, which was the fastest ever electrical 300m by an Under 15.

Top-ranked Natalie Hooper set a championship record in winning the Under-15 pole vault in 3.43m.

Sophie Merritt won an unusual shot and javelin double in the under-15s, her 13.69m was a PB in the shot and heads the rankings.
