The Yvette Baker Trophy is the major UK Junior competition and once again Devon's Juniors took part. And they won.
The race was dominated by BOK and DEVON. After counting 9 runners there was a tie. This meant the 10th runner had to be counted and the software showed BOK had won by 2 points. After the race manual calculations showed there was a software error. There was a difference of 2 points but it was DEVON on the right side with 980 points against 978 to BOK. Next was SO with 864 points. Tess Stone reports an excellent team effort and team spirit!
