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.
