Starting with the under 13 girls there was triple success for Shindra Ayo-Adeyena , first on the track via the hurdles followed by the high jump and shot putt - three events which show promise in a pentathlon.  Another `A` string wins came from Niamah Taiwo over 200 metres whilst Isla Kehoe  second in the 1500m opened the way for Olivia Clarke to take the `B` string result.
