Six Golds for Sussex at English Schools

A brilliant second day at Birmingham saw the Sussex Schools team record one of their best ever English Schools results beating last year’s tally of five gold medals but overall equalled the 2016 total of ten medals.

Despite the loss of three potential medallists this was an excellent result for Sussex on a weekend when there were not any real disappointments and a couple of bonus medals.

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.
