Golds for Eames and Jerges at SEAA Champs

There was a clutch of medals, including two golds, for Sussex at the South of England Indoor championships at Lee Valley over the weekend. Primarily it was the Under 15 and Under 17 championships but the Senior and U20 1500 metres events were incorporated to reduce the time at next weekend’s senior and U20 championships at the same venue. The first gold medal came in the U20 championships on Saturday when Brighton & Hove’s Tom Eames, forsook his final chance of an under 17 title at the Sussex Cross-country championships at Bexhill by running in the U20 age group.

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.
