Podium place for Eva at Bedford

Sussex Schools took one of its smallest teams in recent years to Bedford for the finals of the English Schools Combined Events and Race Walking Championships.

The best Sussex performance of the weekend was by race walker Eva Payton-White who won the battle for the bronze medal in the senior girls 5000m, in a personal best of 30:22.81. Unfortunately, in the senior boys race, Oli Hopkins (Sussex Downs), while chasing Hampshire’s Chris Snook, pushed a little too much and was disqualified.

Weekend action at Bedford and Malaga

The Sussex Schools all-rounders and walkers end the track season for the county at Bedford with the finals of the English Schools' Combined Events and Race Walking championships.

The Sussex squad, which has several times returned with medals or trophies, including last year when they won the Junior Boys event, is our smallest team for many years.

Two Golds for Walkers at Regional Competition

Sussex School’s race walkers captured two South East Regional titles when the events were held in conjunction with the Combined Events competition at Ashford over the weekend.

Competing in the Over 15 age group 3,000m races Eva Payton-White took the Girls title in 17:49.7s while Ollie Hopkins won the Boys race in 15:18.9s.

It was not a vintage year for the Combined Events even though there were two third places in the team events and an individual bronze medal in the Junior (U15) boys Pentathlon.
