Grantham Athletic Club youngsters competed in Youth Development League meetings over the past two weekends.

Due to very low numbers in the under-13/15 match at Burton on Trent, the Grantham athletes finished last overall. Personal best performances were recorded by Morgan Holmes, Phebe Richards-Cole, Francesca Wilson, Saskia Hunt and Lewis Davey.

A better turnout for the under-17/20 age group at Corby gave Grantham AC third place in the team scores, just two points adrift of the runners-up spot, moving them to fourth overall out of seven after three matches.

PBs were achieved by Max Butler, Sophia Tucker and Sarah Garner.
