BROMSGROVE and Redditch AC youngsters made the most of home advantage in the opening Heart of England League meeting at the Abbey Stadium.
The event saw Jack Morley taking on the role of girls’ team manager for the first time and he was rewarded by a splendid win.
B&R AC finished second overall with the girls success and a third place for the boys in the Heart of England League Division Two in which they faced opposition which included Sutton Coldfield and Kettering.
The u17s women saw solid results for many athletes including Izzy Billau who powered to victory in the 300m in 41.7.
The 4x100m relay team of Izzy Billau, Romy Naven, Megan Greissel and Charlotte Tongue performed well and achieved second place after clocking 55.2.
