18 Gold medals and a record for Lois at Sussex Schools’ championships

June 10, 2019

In dreadful weather conditions Brighton and Hove AC athletes descended on K2 Crawley on Saturday to represent their various districts at the Sussex Schools’ Championships. There were many successes and one record breaking performance.

Lois Dooley, took the Inter Girls 1500m steeplechase record in fine style with her run of 5:19.21 smashing the previous best by more than 20 seconds.

Well done to everyone from the club who competed. There were so many promising performances and as a club we had many podium places including a whopping 18 individual gold medal winners. Some of you have already achieved the English Schools Championships standard, and will be on the way to Birmingham next month to represent Sussex, if selected.

The top two Intermediate and Junior athletes from Saturday have been invited to represent the county at the South East Schools inter-counties in Erith, Kent this coming weekend. Good Luck!

(If any performances have been missed send a polite message!)
