At Aldershot, Croydon's junior team earned 16 A event and a further six B event wins, as the Harriers topped the standings on 570 points.

Ashleigh Clarke secured a sprint double in the 100m (12.27s) and 200m (25.21s), and further sprint success came courtesy of Damien Powell (U20 men's 100m, 11.01s), Aaron Adekoya (U17 men's 100m, 11.3secs), Edwin Miles (U17 men's 200m, 23.19s), Robert Sakala (U20 men's 110m hurdles, 16.89s) and Melissa Mendez (U17 women's 200m, 27.15s).

Croydon's javelin throwers stole the show with an event clean sweep thanks to Trevina Medley (U20W, 31.75m), Zoe Fossett (U20W B, 27.55m) and younger sister Emma (U17W 34.03m).

At Winchester, for the U13/15 boys and girls, the squad bagged five A wins and ten B victories, as the team edged home to third.

Coralie Mido ensured a sprint double in the U15 girls' 100m (12.8secs) and 200m (26.6secs), and was supported by Chanice Gordon (26.5secs) in the latter event to ensure maximum points. Emmanuel Lloyd also enjoyed a double win in the U13 boys' long jump (4.63m) and 200m (26.8s).

Two more event maximums were found in the U13 girls' age group thanks to Marcia Sey (12.5s) and Serena Mitchell (12.9s) in the 70m hurdles, while Renae Jenoure-Jackson (7.67m) and Ines Zepa-D'Aboui (6.86m) triumphed in the shot put.
