Devon achieved some great results at the British Schools O' Championships this last weekend at Sutton Park, West Midlands!
There were some notable Devon successes at the Southern Champs on Sunday in the New Forest. The weather was cold but clear, and the forest fast but tricky in places. Well done to our Southern Champions Tom Perry (M12A, shown here with his trophy), Flurry Grierson (M14A) and Carol Pearce (W70A). Full results below - you can search these results by club as well as class.
