Chestnuts fly on home turf


Edging ahead: Chestnuts and North Harringay battle it out in the Girls 24″

Chestnuts Primary were on a mission to win as Round 5 of the League took to the school’s home park last week.

Racing against five other schools, they dominated the day, taking the most wins overall, and continued their hold over the Girls 24” category.

North Harringay were snapping at their heals — winning five races in the Boys and Girls 26” — but had to settle for second place in points for the day.

Stroud Green won three of the days’ races, taking first place in both the Boys’ 24” A-Final and 26” B-Final. South Harringay, St. Aidan’s and St. Mary’s notched up two wins each.

Round 5 saw the most races ever held in a single League event — 20 races in just 2 hours. Thanks to the riders, school staff and volunteers for their help and cooperation in making this possible.

Race results and points

South Harringay currently have a slender lead in the standings1, just ahead of North Harringay. The League competition will be decided on the schools’ best 5 out of 6 scores.

1To make it fairer to schools unable to attend all events, the roller racing scores have been weighted to give each school double points.

Round 6 will be held on 7th June in Bruce Castle Park.
