The joint men's and women's team earned yet another victory in the Sweatshop Southern Athletics League Division 2 South fixture at a very warm and sunny Woking. The match was a close fought affair with the home team until the last events, with good points from the discus and 4x400m relays, sealing another victory. Promotion to Division 1 South seems assured with just one fixture to go at K2 Crawley on Saturday 2 August.
Joe, James and Lillie - leading Crawley AC athletes at the English Schools Athletics Championships 2014
Joe Massimo (Surrey), James Lasis (Sussex) and Lillie Franks (Sussex) were the leading Crawley AC athletes in action at the English Schools Championships held at Birmingham over Friday 12th and Saturday 13th July.
Following Joe's fantastic performance on Friday when he won his heat of the Junior Boys (yr 9 - 10) 300m in a new personal best, Club Record and Championship Best Performance (CBP) of 35.69. He was even faster in the final on Saturday winning in a time of 35.21 and setting another CBP.
James Lasis was unfortunate in the Senior Boys Discus, although his best distance of 50.78m earned him a bronze medal, he threw even further only to have an official rule it outside of the sector.
Lilie Franks won a bronze medal in the Junior Girls High Jump where she cleared a height of 1.69m to equal her personal best and U15 Club Record. Lillie cleared the same height as the winner but was beaten on count-back.
Orla Brothers (Sussex) ran 25.48w to finish third in her heat of the Junior Girls 200m to qualify for the semi-final. Orla ran 25.52 to place third in her semi-final and then finished 5th in the final in a time of 25.83.
