Herts Phoenix were one proud club as nine of their young athletes competed at the English Schools Athletics Championship.
Held in Manchester, Ena Olivier jumped 1.65m for fifth in the intermediate girls' high jump, equalling her PB.
Fellow intermediate Amelia Gittens won her heat in the 200m in 25.45 seconds before clocking 25.26 in the final for another fifth.
Tiana Rizzo was also a heat winner in the intermediate 100m in a time of 12.20 and followed it up with 12.35 for second in her semi-final.
A strong head-wind meant a time of 12.30 and the unlucky one in a three-way photo for second, finishing fourth and just off the podium.
Intermediate boy George Ward ran a controlled 1:57.76 for second in his heat of the 800m with a slightly quicker 1:57.25 in the final leaving him eighth.
Josh Heesom ran 12.10 seconds in his heat of the inter boys 100m while junior girl Amelie Horn jumped 1.51m in the high jump to finish ninth.
