Great Battles for Sussex Schools Cross-country titles

Twelve months back the almost certain winner of the Sussex Schools Inter (U17) boys cross-country championship was sent off course and he finished up with the bronze, instead of a gold, medal

On Wednesday at the Waterhall course in Brighton Thomas Eames (BHASVIC) now in the senior age group put everything to right as he proved a convincing winner of the Senior (U19) title in his first attempt in 24:26s, his third impressive victory on ten days.
