End of the summer season

Combined Events Championships

The 2016 track and field season came to its end over the weekend with the Sussex Combined Events Championships at Sutton. Unpleasant wet and windy conditions on Saturday but a warm sunny day on Sunday. On Saturday Luke Davison did well to come second in the under 15 boys pentathlon with pbs in his long and high jumps with Phil Rogers third in the masters competition.

The girls on Sunday had a couple of near misses with Hannah Plumb fourth in the under 13 event and Erin Harnett fourth in the under 15 event. In Hannah’s case it was very close – she scored 2026 points, just one point behind the 2027 points scored by the third athlete. In the under 13 event Maddie Sims was fifth (and with another year in the age-group ……). And in addition to Erin in the under 15 event Jemma Edgar was 6th and Izzy Sims lower down.

Emmie van Lieshout was in action on both days of the championships as she had 7 events in her under 17 pentathlon – she come seventh with the 2 throws (shot and javelin) not surprisingly for a sprinter letting her down.
