BHASVIC Success at Knole - Sussex Schools

Tomer Tarragano warmed up for Wednesday’s Sussex Schools cross-country championships with a great victory at the prestigious Knole Run event at Sevenoaks for BHASVIC on Saturday.

Over 240 runners featuring some of the best x- country schools in the country raced over 5.8 miles of undulating parkland in the beautiful setting of Knole Park in Sevenoaks.

Tarragano led from start to finish to continue his recent excellent form and his winning time of 31:31 was nine seconds clear of the much fancied Edouand Long from Eton College.

Podium place for Eva at Bedford

Sussex Schools took one of its smallest teams in recent years to Bedford for the finals of the English Schools Combined Events and Race Walking Championships.

The best Sussex performance of the weekend was by race walker Eva Payton-White who won the battle for the bronze medal in the senior girls 5000m, in a personal best of 30:22.81. Unfortunately, in the senior boys race, Oli Hopkins (Sussex Downs), while chasing Hampshire’s Chris Snook, pushed a little too much and was disqualified.

Record breaking International Win for Korczak

Her international debut resulted in another county record for Brighton's Lizzie Korczak, who has made something of a habit of improving her own previous best marks in recent weeks.

This fixture at Grangemouth was a result of Korkzac's javelin win at the English Schools Championships a week ago. Both she and ESAA shot silver medallist - Crawley's Millie Noyce - were selected to represent England Schools at the home countries u17 International in Scotland.
