Ella Robinson achieved three excellent PBs while winning the B 100m and coming second in the A 1500m and 70m hurdles.

There was also a B win for Lois Collins in the 800m, and the 4 x 100m relay team.

Elizabeth Taylor narrowly missed out on victory in the A 200m and 800m, but was rewarded with personal bests in both events.

In the older age groups PAC’s high jumpers were in fine form.

Eleanor Scales took the honours in the senior women’s category with a new personal best of 1.68m, which propelled her up to 15th in the UK rankings.

She was backed up by Jamelia Smith, who won the B high jump, while Ella Greenwood won the under 15 girls competition in a PB of 1.50m.

Smith added another 17cm to her under 17 triple jump club record, with a leap of 10.57m, and also won the 80m hurdles.

Amy Gore returned to competition for the first time this season with a bang, claiming two under 17 club records in the shot putt and javelin, with distances of 8.57m and 25.66m respectively.

Charlotte Hilton also impressed, adding two metres to her hammer PB with 22.34m.

There were also stunning gun to tape victories for Megan Sims in the 300m and Jess Varley in the 1500m.

Ben Papworth lowered his own club record to 39.5secs, when winning the 300m for under 15 boys and he also took the honours in the B 800m race.

There were three victories in the sand for the senior men with Joel Grenfell excelling with a leap of 6.64m to take the long jump.

Vytautas Chrapacas won the A triple jump and B long jump.

Scott Waumsley was another double winner in the under 17 mens 100m hurdles and high jump, running a PB in the former of 15.6.

The under 13 boys also shared in the success with A string wins for Freddie Fraser in the 200m and Harvey Hancock in the 800m.

Both recorded PBs in the process, while William West-Robinson won the B-String 100m.
