Sunday at Kingston
It was hugely disappointing to find that only 5 of our under 17 and under 20 athletes were able to compete in the match at Kingston yesterday – so well done to Abby Beswick, Tori Gache, Emmie van Lieshout, Roisin Bell and Mia Russell. I know that some of you were away and some are injured but surely we can do better than this and provide more athletes for these matches, especially among the boys. The next match in this league is on Sunday June 26 at Woking.
I don’t have a full list of results (and in particular for the track events) but I know that Mia came up with a pb of 1.50 metres in the high jump, Tori added one centimetre to her long jump from the previous weekend and Abby jumped an impressive 5.53 metres in her long jump.
Reminder about Tuesday evening training
It is half-term this week and we expect that some of you will be away for some of the week. But a reminder we will still be training this week. Tuesday evening training will take place at Sackville School from 7 to 8.30. As last week all age-groups will start at 7 and finish at about 8.30
Thursday evening training will be at Imberhorne Upper School – juniors from 7 to 8 and older athletes from 7.30 to 8.45.
For those of you in school years 7 up to 11 there is a Combined Events schools meeting at K2 on Wednesday June 1. Details are available on the Sussex AAA website. You can probably still enter, even at this late stage.
And on the evening of Friday June 3 we have an under 15 match at Horsham – under 13 athletes can take part in this match.
We then have a weekend free of matches before the Sussex Schools Championships on Saturday June 11. Other schools championships are available on that day and I know that Naomi Insole will be taking part in the Surrey Schools event and I think that Mia Russell will be in the Somerset Schools Champs.
What’s happening over the next week ?
