Tom Couzens was the under 11 field event winner for his 38.52m throws in the hammer and 3.77m leap in the long jump.
Jess Cherry won the under 15 field event award, breaking a long-standing club record by putting the shot 8.91 metres (national grade 3) and notching a grade-four effort in the triple jump of 10.06 metres.
