Summer season nearly at its end

Last league matches of the summer

Our last league matches of this rather different season took place over this last weekend – under 13s and under 15s on a cloudy sun-less Saturday while the under 17s and under 20s had lots of warm sunshine on Sunday. Both matches at K2.

The season has seen a number of our throwers doing well, and even if some of them were missing, they still did well. However there was a pleasant surprise waiting for us from our middle distance runners over the weekend.

On Saturday in the under 13 boys 800 metres Oliver Maranzano finished strongly to clinch first place. And in the under 13 girls 800 metres race Ashleigh Levett had to battle hard to hold off a fast finishing athlete in her race. Which she did to hold on to second place in her race – she has another year in the under 13 age-group.

And later on Saturday under 13 Max de Wolf – in his first competition of the season – ran in the 1200 metres where a sprint down the home straight gave him a clear win in just over 4 minutes. Like Ashleigh above Max has another year in the under 13 age group.

And on Sunday we had Josh Hobbs in the under 20 mens 1500 metres produce another first place with another couple of seconds coming off his previous best time.

And of course we saw a number of other pbs which will take up too much space to list in full. Well done to everybody who competed over the weekend – and indeed over the summer – in our league matches and we look forward to 2022 of course.

A last chance for under 13s and under 15s (and under 11s as well) to compete

Still time to get a pb before the season finishes. Saturday September 18 sees a meeting at K2 for these younger age groups. You enter yourself into the events of your choice. More details on the Sussex AAA website with last entries to be made by this coming Sunday. As you can see a few events for under 11s have been added to the timetable.

Training this week

We’re back at Imberhorne Upper School for both Tuesday and Thursday evening sessions this week (and next week as well) – from 6.30 to 7.30.
