SMMA compete against London in cross-country championships

9 February 2018

SMMA travelled to Wormwood Scrubs for the 2018 edition of the London Schools’ Cross Country Championships this week. The boys’ team of Seth Telford, Bedo Drascokszy, Archie Corduner and Stan Hasson battled hard in the gruelling conditions.

The Girls’ team featured well with a good turnout featuring Saffron Boatfield, Nicole Campbell and Thea Aubrey-Gimenez and Lia Khushi-Echevarria.

The stand-out performances came from Bedo Drascokszy who, in the Junior boys age group, raced against Year 9s coming 24th. A fantastic achievement in a highly competitive race.

A mention goes to Stan Hasson also, who battled to come 13th in the Junior Boys ‘B’ race. Both of the athletes have been training competitively with London Heathside all year and now look to the next competition at Avery Hill for the Inter-Borough Championships in March.
