Senior men: Arron Owen (200m); Gareth Hopkins (400m); James Thie (1500m); Jac Palmer (hammer).

Senior women: Lucy Marland (1500m & 3000m); Ceri Jones (1500m steeplechase).

Under 17 men: Iwan Robinson-Booth (200m); Tom Hanson (shot put); Kieran Grimwade (hammer).

Under 17 women: Lana Culliford (300m hurdles); Grace Leggett (pole vault); Ffion Palmer (hammer).

Under 15 boys: Joseph Coope-Franklin (300m); Henry Gauntlett (javelin).

Under 15 girls: Cassey Grimwade (discus & hammer).

The match result was:

1. West Wales (999.5)
