Newbury Athletic Club came third at their Division 2 West Southern Athletics League meeting in Portsmouth after finishing just two points behind the hosts.
It was a three-horse race on the day, with Windsor, Slough, Eton and Hounslow taking the win on 234 points, followed by Portsmouth on 218 and Newbury’s 216.
The day started well for Newbury with a dominant double victory in the hurdles for Sam Plumb and Matt Davies, followed by an 800m win for Yaz Ryder.
Plumb followed up his earlier success with wins in the 200m and 110m hurdles, while Helen Broadbridge was the star performer of the ladies’ throws after winning the hammer.
And both of Newbury’s men’s relay teams managed to take victory for the first time in the league.
Elsewhere, five Newbury athletes were in the Berkshire team at the English Schools Athletics Championships, securing a best-ever haul of four medals.
Charlotte Payne produced a great final throw to take bronze in the discus, a result also matched by Millie Quaintance.
In the senior boys’ hammer, Ollie Hewitt exceeded all expectations as he added two metres to his lifetime best to take bronze, while Kitty Shepherd-Cross managed a silver in the 1,500m.
