The men and women fielded a weakened team at Basingstoke on Sunday and despite several fine individual performances, (including super veteran steeplechase athlete Rob Creed clearing a height in the pole vault), they finished in third place. Clearing 3.65m in the Pole Vault, Natasha Purchas improved her own personal best and Under 17 Womens Club Record.

Crawley athletes had a successful weekend at the Sussex and Surrey County Champs held at K2 Crawley and Kingston Athletic Tracks.
Among the many excellent performances was a new U20 Men 4x100m Relay Club Record when the team of Nathan Packham, Josh Persad, Jamie Holme and Rhy Turner ran 43.99 to beat the previous record of 44.1 set 25 years ago.
Althought the blustery wind meant at K2 that there were no records on the track in the Sussex Championships, there were two record breakers in the field. The U15 Girls shot putt saw victory for Millie Noyce with her best effort of 11.69m setting a new Championship Best Performance. Meanwhile, over 40 years after his first appearance in the Sussex Championships, Mick Jones (2002 Commonwealth Games Champion), once again wearing the Crawley vest, won the senior men's hammer and his best throw of 62.39m was a British best throw by an athlete in the M50 category. Jones' throw doesn't set a British Masters Record because he was throwing the 7.25 senior hammer and not the lighter 6kg used by veteran athletes! In the U17W Pole Vault Natasha Purchas set a new CBP when she cleared 3.52m.
Rhys Turner, Adam Lindo, Abbie Packham, Vicki Pellett won multiple gold medals on a weekend when Crawley athletes won so amny gold, silver and bronxze medals in Sussex and Surrey.
