We’ve had a busy weekend
2 matches over this last weekend with the under 13s and under 15s going to Hastings on Saturday and then the senior team at Horsham on Sunday. For the first time this season the weather for the match on Sunday was proper athletics weather with decent warm sunshine. My thanks to Hannah Jones and Daniel Medcalf for responding to our request for help with the processing the results on Sunday.
A feature of both matches was the number of athletes who were not able to take part. For example we had just 2 under 13 boys at Saturday’s match and 5 ladies for the senior match on Sunday. Thanks and very well done to all those who came to the matches and let’s hope for better turn-outs for the next matches.
We don’t yet have the full results from either of the weekend matches.
Matt Rieley Night at Sackville last Tuesday evening
We had good numbers at Sackville School on last Tuesday evening as we remembered Matt Rieley. After a couple of ordinary 4 x 100 metres relays involving all the athletes we had a rather different 10 minute relay which again involved everyone.
School years 10 and above match this Sunday May 28
We have a match for those of you in school years 10 to 13 on Sunday at Croydon. Lester Medcalf has been contacting athletes and with the bank holiday and half-term week following let’s hope that those of you with exams looming can find a space for some fresh air on Sunday.
