Top Results from HHH athletes at London Schools Cross Champs

At the London Schools Cross Country Championship yesterday (Wed 3rd Feb) there were some top performances from athletes from Herne Hill Harriers.

There was only one HHH race winner, Jaden Kennedy in the Junior Boys B race. Many congratulations to him.

HHH athletes in top 4 (and therefore automatically selected for London Schools team for the English Schools Cross Country Champs at Wollaton Park, Nottingham, Sat 5th March):

Junior Girls                          Lulu King 4th                        fantastic achievement as its her first year in the age-group

Intermediate Girls           Katie Balme 2nd                she was 3rd overall in the race (Inter Girls and Seniors race together), another great achievement for an athlete who has another year in this age-group

Ella Newton 3rd                 4th overall in the race, claiming her first London Schools medal


Senior Girls                         Kate Brown 2nd                  6th overall in the race. I think this may be Kate’s first individual London Schools medal, very well deserved.


Intermediate Boys          Moh Mohamud                3rd, again a great achievement as this is his first year in the age-group and only beaten by two very good year 11’s.


HHH athletes in positions 5-15 and therefore received a letter saying they are being considered for the London team:


Junior Girls                          Lily Newton                        5th

Rosie Hammond               6th, like Lulu its her first year in age-group

Jessica Tabraham             11th, also first year in age-group


Intermediate Girls                Tatiana Cooke                   5th, 7th overall in the race

Zoe Tompkins                    8th, 10th overall in the race – but ran with a stitch all the way round

Kayah Wilks                        14th, 16th overall in the race   (and, I think, 4th year 10 in the race so a very good performance)


Junior Boys                         Mohamed Ali                     5th

Jacob Alley                          12th, again a great achievement as this is his first year in the age-group.


Intermediate Boys          Laurie Pope                        5th

Isaac Brown                        6th

Paul Chalobah                   11th


Senior Boys                        Billy Black                             6th
