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.

Mixed fortunes for Sussex Schools Combined Eventers

There were mixed fortunes for the three individual Sussex School athletes who travelled to Boston for the finals of the English Schools Combined events championships.

Despite having a slightly lower key season that last year the ever reliable Matt Smith (BHASVIC), in his final year at these championships had a good result in the Senior (U19) decathlon by placing tenth with 5470 points.

He did manage to include one Pb in his ten events with a run of 18.07s in the 110m hurdles.

Sussex Schools Squad at Boston

A group of Sussex School athletes complete the 2017 Sussex track season when they travel to Boston for the English Schools Combined events championships.

All seven of the athletes qualified from the Area Championships, back in June, when the junior boy’s team had well beaten the Hampshire squad to win the Junior (U15) boys team title.

Adam Lindo (Downlands) had won the individual title from Spike Gleave (Eastbourne) while Seb Wallace (Forest) and Tom Ridley (Worthing) made up the team.
