A small group of RPAC junior athletes had mixed fortunes in the County Indoor Championships at the David Weir Leisure Centre over the weekend.

Barton Carter jumped good distances in the U15 long jump, but consistently failed to reach the take off board, finishing in 4th place. Eva Peters had 3 jumps over 4 metres in the U15 long jump, with her best just below her PB. In the 60 metres sprint heats Eva improved her PB by 0.3 seconds, just missing out on a semi-final place.

On Sunday, Drew Burridge, running in the U17 60 metres  as practice to sharpen his starting for his favoured 400 metre event, ran just below his PB. Drew was compensated by a 3rd place medal in the U17 shot putt, achieving over 9 metres in his first ever competition in the event.  Jake Chandler, in his first ever competition, ran creditably in the U17 60m
