Top performance of the day came from Ryan Webb who broke the League record with a jump of 2m15 in the senior menís high jump and then followed it up with a 12m61 triple jump win. Otherwise top three performances in field events were limited to Abbie Loveringís 4m43 in the under 17 long jump, Harry Woods 4m37 in the under 13s long jump and Jack Williams third placed 1m.25 in the high jump ahead of his twin brother Tom only on countback. Kane Aubrey and Charlie Davies were second and third in the under 17ís hammer.

The track was where the points really accumulated with an under 17 one- two in the 100 metres from Jamie Newnham 11.88 and Kane Aubrey 11.92. Kane 24.16 was also second to Jamieís third 24.26 in the 200.  Pippa Hine was in good form winning the senior womenís 100 in 12.76 and the 200 in 26.35. Erin Thickett was third in the under 17 100 metres in 13.16 and the 200 in 27.02.  Harry Woods produced two second places in the 100 in 13.84 and the 200 in 28.19. Ronnie Debique 23.53 was third in the 200 metres and second in the 400 hurdles in 62.63. Abbie Lovering won the under 17 300 hurdles in 46.47.

But it was not just about the sprinters as there were dominant performances from Max Meadwell in the under 17 3000 metres 10.04.22.  Tom Fuller won the under 15s event with 10.23.87 backed up in third by Joel Green 10.29.69.  Joey Kelliher was second in the under 20 800 metres in 2.02.58 with Ben Martin third in the under 17 event 2.12.60 just ahead of clubmate Seth Lake.  Iris Courtney stepped up an age group to record a 2.34.18 third place in the under 15 age group.

Alas Wimborne could not retain the winners trophy that they won last year but they had a real good try.
