In the Inters, there were strong performances from Anna Russell (R) who placed 3rd in the 1500m, Jess Alexander (Rv) 3rd in the Discus, and Lois Lillie (Rv) 3rd in both the 100m and 200m.

In the Juniors, the standout performer was Farrah Stephens-Martin (M) who came first in the 100m, 200m and the Long Jump. She was also part of the 4x100m winning relay team that included Anouska Powell (W), Sophie Edison (M) and Thea Thompson-Brown (R).

Other highlights came in the field with Delphine Ayitey-Hammond (Rv) finishing 2nd in the Shot Put, Thea Thompson-Brown (R) 2nd in the 75m Hurdles, and Anouska Powell (W) 2nd in the 300m.
