English Schools Round-up

The tremendous achievements by the Sussex Schools team at Birmingham is almost certainly the second best ever at these championships.

A total of 15 medals has, I believe, only been bettered once and that was way back in 1958 when 17, including eight gold medals were won.

One of the gold medals then was won by Peter Standen, who also set the championship record in the Intermediate 800m, and Standen is still active today as a Marksmen at most of the leading Sussex meetings and is a well-respected middle distance coach.

Two more golds and Junior Girls win the Championship Shield at the English Schools - Day 2 report

It was a ‘Super Saturday’ for Sussex with two more gold medals and seven additional bronzes at the English Schools’ Championships in Birmingham.

It brought Sussex’s total podium places to a magnificent 15 with a final tally of four gold, two silver and nine bronze medals. In addition the Junior Girls team won the Championship Shield as the highest points scorers for top eight finishes and the Junior Boys were second in their category.  Overall this was Sussex’s best English Schools Championships result in recent history.
