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.

More Under 15 Records - Euro U23 Champs

The Sussex Under 15 athletes are determined to rewrite the Sussex U15 League records this season and the had another bite last Wednesday.

In June six tumbled in both the East and West match and at Wednesday’s East Division match at Lewes another three fell by the wayside.

In almost perfect conditions newly crowned English Schools Junior javelin champion Lizzie Korczak broke the League record again having broken it in June and then lost it a couple of days later to Horsham’s Peanut Meekings.

Sussex fight at Kingsmeadow

Despite the difficulties in finding team managers for the Annual South East Senior Inter-County match Noel Butler and Elise Lovell did manage to get a few athletes to Kingsmeadow on Sunday to fly the Sussex Flag.

It was very much a skeleton team that struggled into sixth place of the eight competing Counties but there were some outstanding performances by Sussex athletes.
