This Wednesday, Emanuel’s cross-country squad made their first outing of the season at the Borough Championships held on Tooting Bec Common. We had a successful day with over half the squad recording top 20 finishes and a quarter finishing in the top ten.
Congratulations go to Georgie (year 10) and Izzy (year 7) who won their races by impressively comfortable margins; 30 seconds and 10 seconds respectively.
Silver medals were won by Harry and Fleur (year 8) who both held off late challenges in the home straight.
The unlucky few who finished narrowly outside the medals were headed by Edward (year 10, 4th), Amelie (year 9, 4th), Lucas (year 7, 5th), Teddy (year 10, 5th), Maddy (year 10, 6th), Daniel (year 10, 6th), Eva (year 9, 7th) and Freya (year 7, 8th).
Well done to all who took part on a thoroughly successful and enjoyable day.
Mr King (Head of Athletics and Cross-Country)
