Lucky Seven for Sussex at Sheffield

Sussex youngsters scooped a brilliant seven medals, including one gold, at the National Indoor Age Groups championships at Sheffield over the weekend.

Pride of place went to Brighton & Hove’s Amber Anning who in her first year in the U20 age group romped away with the 400m title in a new indoor pb of 54.55s which suggests that she looks well in line for another stunning track season.

More CBP's on Day 2 of the Indoor Championships

On this second day of the Sussex Indoor Championships, held with the Surrey event at Sutton, four more Championship Best's were set.

The five recorded yesterday were all by men, but today the women had equal honours with both coming in the under 17 age group. First up was Millie Noyce (Crawley) who shattered the previous shot mark of 11.01 with a put of 12.65. In the hurdles her club-mate Katie Bristowe took 3 tenths off the old record when she crossed the line in 8.99 seconds.

Brilliant results for Sussex at Inter-counties

There were five Sussex winners on a rain and windswept day at Horspath, Oxford, in the Southern U15 and U20 Inter-county match over the weekend.

Holiday’s played havoc with most County teams but the Sussex Under 15s excelled themselves with a brilliant second team spot scoring 123.5 points to the winning Kent team’s 124.5 while the decimated Under 20 squad, ably supplemented by some U17 athletes did exceptionally well to finish in sixth team place.

All in all it was a fine performance by the Sussex athletes many of whom had to battle with severe weather.
