North Somerset AC youngsters produced personal best performances at the English Indoor Championships in Sheffield.

In the under-17 women’s 60m, Steph B raced to a time of 8.29 seconds to finish sixth in her heat.

And in the under-20 women’s pole vault, Caroline W continued steadily towards the four-metre mark with a new best of 3.55m to finish in an excellent fifth place.

She also cleared the same height as the bronze medalist but missed out on countback.

In the under-15 boys’ 300m, Chris R (right) produced two excellent performances, knocking 2.2secs off his best as he clocked 39.88 to win his heat and then improved to 39.10 in the final for a respectable fifth-place finish.
