THERE were medals galore for Havering Mayesbrook at last weekend's Essex Indoor Championships at Lee Valley.
Alex Law, the youngest club athlete in action, struck double gold with wins in both 60m and long jump, the latter in a PB.
Rebecca O'Neill set a new championship best performance in winning the under-17 women's 800m in a time of 2.20.07 and Jack Edgar-Hill made up for a disappointing run at the England Athletics Champ-ionships in Birmin-gham the previous day with a PB and CBP equalling 8.50s run to win under-17 hurdles gold.
Senior golds went to Claire Brennan (hurdles) and Lucy Sargent (200m).
