Mixed fortunes for Sussex Schools Combined Eventers

There were mixed fortunes for the three individual Sussex School athletes who travelled to Boston for the finals of the English Schools Combined events championships.

Despite having a slightly lower key season that last year the ever reliable Matt Smith (BHASVIC), in his final year at these championships had a good result in the Senior (U19) decathlon by placing tenth with 5470 points.

He did manage to include one Pb in his ten events with a run of 18.07s in the 110m hurdles.

Sussex Schools Squad at Boston

A group of Sussex School athletes complete the 2017 Sussex track season when they travel to Boston for the English Schools Combined events championships.

All seven of the athletes qualified from the Area Championships, back in June, when the junior boy’s team had well beaten the Hampshire squad to win the Junior (U15) boys team title.

Adam Lindo (Downlands) had won the individual title from Spike Gleave (Eastbourne) while Seb Wallace (Forest) and Tom Ridley (Worthing) made up the team.

Junior Boys Win at Kingsmeadow

The Sussex Schools junior Boy’s team were brilliant in the South East Schools Combined Events championships at Kingsmeadow over the weekend.

With a series of fine performances Adam Lindo and Spike Gleave filled the first two places in the Pentathlon and with Seb Wallace and Tom Ridley placing eighth and ninth the Sussex team trounced Hampshire by nearly three hundred points for victory.
