A sunny, Sunday at Brighton's Withdean Stadium saw the Crawley U13 athletes visit for the final of the Sussex U13 League. Once again there were many fine performances from the Crawley athletes and although they finished runner-up to Brighton and Hove City AC, the highlight was a new Club U13G record (Lauren Lethbridge, Katie Bristowe, Kaujaruruamo Marshall and Ellie Franklin) in the 4x100m relay (54.15). The success of the younger athletes this season in sprint relays is in part due to the hard work and enthusiasm of coach Kevin Jenner.
Katie, Kaujaruruamo, Ellie and Lauren with team manager Fiona Newport who has worked hard throughout the season for the Club.
Friday evening at Withdean Stadium in Brighton saw the final of the Sussex Under 15 League. Crawley convincingly defended their title, winning the match with 460 points, nearest rivals, Brighton and Hove City AC, had 375 points.
Crawley broke four league records on the night; the girls 300m (Orla Brothers 41.2, also a new Club Record), boys 300m (Joseph Massimo 36.2) and the girls (2:45.8) and boys (3:03.1) 4x300m relays.
Both team managers were extremely proud of the athletes for their hard efforts throughout the whole season.
With regret we must report that Paula Monk passed away on Friday. Paula was a great servant of Crawley AC for many years having become involved with the Club through her sons. Paula was a team manager before becoming a time-keeper where she was often an essential part of fixtures throughout the County.
Her funeral will be held at Surrey & Sussex Crematorium, Balcombe Road on Monday 8th September at 3.45pm.
