Becky Owen struck bronze in the South of England Combined events championships at Oxford at the weekend.

Competing in the senior Heptathlon the Brighton & Hove all-rounder was just one of four Sussex athletes in action but both Elise Lovell (Hastings) and Katie Garland (Brighton & Hove) had to withdraw through injuries and it was Owen who snatched third place with a total of 4317 points.

Beth Crocker from Crawley filled sixth place with 3572 points.

Record Breaking in Under 15 League matches.

There was a Sussex Under 15 record breaking spree last week when the second of this season Under 15 League matches were held.

In the East division at Lewes, on Wednesday the home club’s Sam Dunstall improved the boys long jump mark with a fine leap of 5.77, and Brighton & Hove’s Elizabeth Korczak upped the girls javelin throwing mark to 36.55m.

In the girls 800 metres the first two runners bettered the existing record with Rose Chaplin (Eastbourne), the County Champion managing to hold off Alex Nann (Brighton & Hove) in 2:22.3s to 2:23.0.
