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.

Round-up and weekend

The change of direction of the course for last Saturday’s Sussex Road Relay championships at Christ’s Hospital seems not to have affected the runners and although no course records were broken (six succumbed last year) a couple were approached.

The races were thought to be one of the best of these championships though a strong wind, more than the change of direction, were considered to have greater effect on the times.

Cook second in the Schools International

Bethany Cook helped the English Schools to victory in the Junior Girls race at the Schools International Cross-country event at Nottingham last weekend.

Cook, who has certainly been the outstanding Sussex cross-country runner this season winning every one of her races until she reached the English Schools championships.

Again Bea Wood from Wiltshire, who appears to have come rather late to what has been a hard and muddy season, got the better of the encounter.
