The fast running Amy Redmond took over the baton and passed to Lorna Monaghan who put all those hard winter training sessions to good use to run a storming last leg and secure silver behind the winning KCH team.

In the girls’ u16 1500m walk Isabel Morgan showed her considerable talent at this event, taking a bronze medal on the back on a limited training schedule.
