Tremendous results for Sussex at Loughborough

A tremendous day for Sussex, at the Inter-counties cross country championships at Prestwold Hall in Loughborough, on Saturday saw one gold medal for Bethany Cook and four Top Ten team places.

Both the U17 teams finished a splendid fifth place, the senior men a remarkable seventh and the U15 girls filled ninth place  - all significant team performances.

The course was really tough with mud that Dave Leach, the men’s team manager, described as, “the worst I’ve seen this century”.

Tough battles for Sussex at Loughborough

Sussex will be represented in all ten age groups at the Inter-counties Cross-country Championships, being held at Loughborough on Saturday.

Some teams are looking pretty thin and as we go to press it will be touch and go if we complete a scoring team in either the U20 or senior women’s age groups.

Saturday’s races will be a good test for many of the youngsters who will also be competing for the Sussex School’s teams at the English Schools Inter-counties the following weekend at Leeds.
