News from Horsham + changes to Tuesday evening training

Horsham Open on Sunday

A sunny but breezy day for the Horsham Open and we had 6 or 7 athletes taking part in a variety of events. I don’t have the full results as yet but I did notice that we did well in the under 13 high jump. Hannah Plumb won the girls event with 1.45 metres (and later threw a javelin pb of 22.80 metres) while we had the first two in the boys high jump – Christian Given first with 1.35 and Cameron Wells second with 1.30 metres.

Olivia Aston continued her good season in the 100 metres (14.2 seconds) and 200 metres (29.6 seconds) and Ethan Scott was again under 5 minutes in the 1500 metres with 4 minutes 58.5 seconds. Ethan’s brother Josh, Cameron’s sister Sophie and Christian’s sister Verity also took part in the under 11 600 metres.

Not too far away we will have the Sussex and Surrey Combined Events championships in September. We have done well at these championships over the last few years and we’d like that to continue.
