Medals Galore at County Athletics Finals

Seaford's Harry Marchant who won gold in the 400m Senior Boys' HurdlesSeaford College pupils were astoundingly successful in the West Sussex County Athletics Finals held at the weekend in Crawley.

Particular mention must go to Harry Marchant, who won gold in the Senior Boys’ 400m hurdles, setting a new school record in the process. Ross Hinton also won gold in the Senior Boys’ Long Jump, and many congratulations must go to them both.

Seaford saw success elsewhere with several silver medals. Simon Ward won silver in the Junior Boys’ Javelin, and he has been subsequently selected for the County team for their match next weekend. Both the Senior Boys and Junior Boys won silver in the relay.

Flying the flag for the girls was Charlotte Reading, who won an impressive bronze in the 800m. Jack Glascott won bronze in the Junior Boys’ Discus, as did Hugo Squires in the Inter Boys’ 200m. The Inter Boys picked up another bronze in the relay.Ross Hinton with his gold medal for the Senior Boys' Long Jump

We are now looking forward to our Sports’ Day which promises to be highly competitive.”
