In the Radley relay event the senior and inter boys ran extremely well in a combination of the 4x100m and the medley relay – where 4 runners complete 200m, 200m, 400m or 800m to give a grand total distance of 1600m – or a mile. The senior boys finished an impressive 6th place – with a superb time of 3minutes 53 – only 9 seconds behind Eton’s winning time of 3:44. The inter boys finished with a total time of 4:30 which was also pleasing.

In the Oxford City Schools event the Year 7 boys retained the crown as current champions and the Junior and Inter boys both finished in second place in their categories. Ben Sims won the 1500m, Jack Lipman won the 800m, James Coles won the shot putt, Woody Blakesley Grimes won the discus, Hugo Albert won the javelin, Seb Gardner won the Junior 800m and Matthew Critchley won the javelin.

Good luck to all those competing at Stowe and at Bromsgrove this week.


A very competitive fixture against St Edward's at the Oxfordshire Golf Club was held Tuesday 7th May. Fin Szafnauer, Will Price and Abhir Joshi beat their opponents in a match play format. Edmund Fry ended up playing some competitive golf but lost 2&1.


The 2nd VI travelled to Bristol for the Western Region Championships, and beat sides from Eton, Millfield and Sherborne to finish a creditable 7th of 13 teams.

Meanwhile the 1st VI spent three days in Liverpool sailing against a mixture of university and adult teams. The learning curve was steep, but there were significant successes in the form of wins against sides from Exeter, Manchester and Edinburgh Universities as well as against a guest Australian team. Given the quality of the opposition, Magdalen sailors were delighted to finish 35th of 36 teams.
