There were seven county teams competing.
All our athletes competed well and were in relay teams and running teams that all won individual medals: Olivia Hall won a bronze in 4 x 1 Lap Relay; Olivia D'Aversa won bronze in Obstacle Relay and 4 x 1 Lap Relay; Abbie Jones won gold in 8 Lap Paarlouf; Olivia Phelps won silver in 2 Lap Relay; Adam Ulhaq won silver in 2 lap individual and 4x1 Lap relay; and Luke Lom-Hynes won gold in 8 Lap Paarlouf and silver in 6 lap individual.
Berkshire teams did extremely well – the U13 boys won and will be going to national finals in Manchester in April; the U15 boys also won although Maidenhead had no athletes in this team.
The U13 girls and U15 girls’ teams both came 2nd.
Maidenhead Athletic Club would like to thank the Sportshall Berkshire Team Manager Conrad Rowland for all his hard work in organising the Berkshire teams.
