Sparkling third place for Sussex Schools at Crawley

It was a great afternoon for Sussex Schools in the Inter-counties Schools match on Saturday.

In dull and blustery conditions that was a hindrance to most athletes at K2 the Sussex team finished a splendid third in a tight match that saw Kent lead all the way and win with 612 points with Surrey taking second place with 548 points after Sussex had held second place for much of the match.

Sussex had to settle for third place with 515 points to hold off Hampshire who scored 504 points.

A busy weekend for Sussex Young Athletes

The accent is again on Schools athletics this weekend and Crawley’s K2 Leisure where the South East Schools Inter-county match is being held on Saturday.

It will be very much a case of David against three Goliaths as Sussex will be facing the power of the Kent, Hampshire and Surrey teams.

The match, which only includes the U15 (Junior) and U17 (Intermediate) age groups, will be watched by the Sussex Schools selectors as they need to finalise the team that will be representing Sussex at the English Schools championships at Birmingham next month.
