Sussex County Championships 2015 – K2 Crawley

For those of you who are not aware the Sussex Championships are held at K2 each year for pupils in Years 6, 7 and 8 and are used not only to earn a county placing but also to determine who gets to represent the county at the National Finals.  In order to qualify for the National Finals the competitors must win the event to gain automatic qualification or come 2nd and meet the required standard.
This year we entered 23 pupils who could all meet the required standard so were confident of some success whether it was personal bests (PB), new school records, medal placings or qualification to the National Finals.

*event is not eligible for National Finals

Well done to all 23 pupils who competed, the whole day was a success and it was topped off with 25 Personal Bests, 5 New School Records, 3 Silver and 3 Gold medal placings plus 5 pupils earning the right to represent Copthorne and Sussex at the National Finals in Birmingham on Wednesday 24th June 2015.

This competition brings together the best of the best of athletes in Sussex and being selected for the squad alone is a huge achievement. Athletics is all about breaking your own personal best and if that result is good enough to win then that is an added bonus.  I am extremely proud of all 23 pupils and hope that they were either inspired to carry on with athletics or have a new interest in the sport.

National Finalists:
Zac Collins, Ella Devine, Ella Cavedaschi, Daniel Persad and Zac Riley.
