Unfortunately we had an incomplete team in the men’s u17 and were unable to field a team in the women’s u17 event
The senior Men’s team were always in contention, Charlie Hulson put the team in the lead with the fastest of all legs and were always in the top 2 until the final leg, where Lincoln Wellington ran away with the victory and Leeds went past us for second. Dejene Gezemu ran the fourth fastest leg. The B team finished in 19th with Dan Preston running a very fast leg and the C team finished 52nd.
Prospects look good for the national championships with the selection committee having a difficult decision on whom to select for the A team with several more athletes available.
