Sussex Athletes Shine at the South of England Inter-Counties

Fine performances from Sussex’s leading Under 20 and Under 15 athletes took both teams to fourth place overall at the competitive annual South of England Inter-Counties Championships.

With 16 teams competing at Horspath, including the mighty Essex, Surrey, Hampshire, Kent and Berkshire the Under 15 girls and U20 men performed brilliantly to top their individual groups. In sunny but windy conditions, Sussex had an abundance of finalists across the two age groups and four event winners.

Seventh U15 league victory for Crawley

Crawley Athletic Club won their seventh Sussex U15 League final comfortably from Brighton & Hove at Withdean Stadium on Friday evening.

Leading from early in the programme they never looked like being headed and eventually finished well clear with 486 points to Brighton & Hove’s 406 point who only just managed to turn the tables on last year’s runners up, Chichester, who totalled 402 with the rest of the teams more than one hundred points adrift.

Medals a plenty for Sussex youngsters

Sussex youngsters scooped up a plethora of medals at the South of England U15 and U17 championships at Lee Valley over the weekend, with some twenty youngsters on the podium and four of them achieving gold.

Conditions were fairly mild for Saturday’s events but Sunday produced a strong head wind for most of the track races.
