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.

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.
