Following their success at the Schools Score Championships in October 24 Junior Devon members headed off to Derbyshire representing Torquay Boys' Grammar School for the main event: the British Schools Championships.
In truth, the event wasn't held on the best Orienteering area ever seen but it was the same for all 800 runners taking part. Also the mud was everywhere and any grass remaining soon turned into a paddy field. Perhaps these "orrible" conditions suited us as we recorded our best ever set of results.
Yr 7's 4th place Freddie Gilmore, Reuben Vasey, Sam Johnson
Yr 8 's Runners Up Ben Stevens, Hugo Twigger, Sam Kneath
Yr 9 's Champions Harry Jamieson, Tom Snow, James Condon
Yr 10's Champions James Dean, Dominic Clarke, Toby Bate
Yr 11's Runners Up Sean Rowe , Sam Peat, Dominic Cook
Yr 13's 3rd place Harry Morse, Simon Hayward , Chris Garrett
A great set of results and another step forward. Its a matter now of making sure that the progress continues next year.
