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. 

Cook second in the Schools International

Bethany Cook helped the English Schools to victory in the Junior Girls race at the Schools International Cross-country event at Nottingham last weekend.

Cook, who has certainly been the outstanding Sussex cross-country runner this season winning every one of her races until she reached the English Schools championships.

Again Bea Wood from Wiltshire, who appears to have come rather late to what has been a hard and muddy season, got the better of the encounter.
