Wandsworth Inter Schools Cross Country Championships:

Although it was a typical wet English day Bolingbroke academy were in high spirits taking part in the first cross country race of this academic year.  The team consisted of a mixture of years 7s, 8s, 9s and 10s. Everyone completed the 2000 metres with the year 10 boys having an extra challenge of completing 3000 metres.

Joel Rooney and Zayd Addicott both placed first in their races. They will now be selected for the London Schools Cross Country team and compete the in The London Youth Games. This was a great experience for all athletes involved to see the talent that is out there. Mohammed Aqil also ran a brilliant race and only just missed out on being selected. He placed 5th in his year and is now thinking about joining a cross country team outside of school.

The team:

  • Nikita Authier-Labille
  • Sunny Balogun
  • Joel Rooney
  • Jess Ward
  • Zayd Addicott
  • Hannah Cheeseman
  • Reece Wheeler
  • Jasmine Meddah
