Crawley AC's U13 and U15 Teams were victorious in their final Sussex League 'West' fixtures of the season, which were held on consecutive evenings at Broadbridge Heath.
The highlight of the fixtures came in the Under 15 match which saw a new U15 Boys Club Record in the 4x100m relay. Warren Wilson, James Blanchard, Joe Massimo and Josh Persad raced around in 46.7 seconds.
Both teams now look forward to their league finals in which all the leading Sussex athletic clubs take part.
(Another) Promotion for Crawley U17/U20 Team; UK Youth Development U17/U20 League Division Southern South 1, K2, Sun 27 Jul 2014
The Crawley AC Under 17/Under 20 Team completed their second straight promotion by winning their last fixture of the season at K2. Although the team was depleted due to injuries and holidays, there were several great individual performances, and once again it was a great team performance with many athletes earning points by competing in extra events, including some that they wouldn't usually do.
The Club were, once again, well supported by the hard-working efforts of their officials.
The Team look forward to the challenge of competing in Southern Premier 2 next year.

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.
