The boys event saw Jorden Fisher-Eames (Parkfields Middle School) triumph with 102.60 points whilst Thomas Browne (Chantry Primary Academy) picked up a respectable bronze.

In the Junior 1m girls event, Olivia Wall (Arnold Academy) just missed out on qualifying with 127.20 points as she finished in fifth place, while Baye Cooke McDonald (Stopsley High School) was sixth with 125.45 points.
