Strong performances at County Athletics Competition

Posted: 20th June 2014 | Category: Sports

On Monday 16th June, a small team of athletes travelled to Hurstpierpoint Junior County Athletics Competition, flying the flag for Skippers.

Diya Pandya gained a County podium place in the 70m hurdles in a time of 14.89. Diya also achieved a distance of 3.04m in the long jump, against a strong field from the rest of Sussex.

Matilda Peate tackled the gruelling 1500m coming home a creditable 5th in a personal best time of 6.44.00.  

Lydia Hugo also achieved a personal best time in the 100m, 16.25 taking 10th place in a field of 25 runners.  

Eve Steward completed the under 11 girls line up and competed in the rounders ball throw. A throw with a distance of 27.00m placed Eve 9th out of 22.

The under 10s were represented by Lucie Morris, Oliver de Laroque and Alfie Hunter.  Lucie ran the 75m in a personal best time of 13.52 taking 9th spot and threw the rounders ball 26.62m with a respectable 5th place, both from a field of over 20 Sussex top under 10 girls.  

Not to be outdone, Oliver also competed in the 75m, achieving his own best time of 12.62 and taking 9th place out of 21. In his long jump Oliver came 7th with a sound 3.02m.  

Alfie took part in the cricket ball throw, with a distance of 32.64m and the reward of 6th place out of 20.

Finally, the excitement of the under 11 relay saw Diya, Eve, Lydia and Lucie run for team Skippers gaining a stunning 9th place against the field of much larger Prep schools.

Well done to all our athletes for a very successful competition.
