Final 7th July 2013: Grantham, Lincs
Well done to all the Juniors who ran for Devon at the finals of the Yvette Baker competition at Grantham over the weekend. With the largest team there of 32 runners they excelled in the heat, and was it hot, taking the runners up position just two points behind the winners. Bearing in mind our "second team" were in eighth place that showed our strength in depth and it looks very good for the future.
Orienteering was represented for the first time today (Friday 28th June) at the Devon School Games, held at Exeter Arena.
