Berkshire's only gold medal winner in the two-day event was Charlotte Payne from the Kennet School in Thatcham. She secured the senior girls' hammer title with a throw of 57.53 metres.

Zara Obamakinwa, who attends Queen Anne's in Caversham, took the silver medal in the intermediate girls' discus with a throw of 38.11 metres. The same event saw The Holt's Lucy James finish sixth with 33.90m.
