Millie Hemsley cleared 2.90m for 17th place in a very strong field.

The Junior Boys had to wait 8 hours in glorious sunshine before the Vault started at 18.00.

Jack Harris cleared 2.85m to finish 10th and Bill Saunders cleared 3.00m to finish 9th.

Millie, Jack & Bill all still have a further year in the same age groups.
