Edinburgh Southern Orienteering Club

SSOF 2012Lanark Racecourse, 6 June

ESOC juniors enjoyed the 2012 Scottish Schools’ Orienteering Festival.

A few ESOC juniors competed at the annual Scottish Schools event, at Lanark Racecourse and Moor Country Park, in slightly damp weather. The terrain was fast open grassland on the racecourse, and mixed woodland beyond, with lots of paths and some rough open areas. Schools from all over Scotland competed, and there were over 350 pupils taking part. There are separate classes for boys and girls, based on academic year, with entrants from P5 upwards. In each class, the top 3 results for the same school are totalled to give the team score.

ESOC juniors did well in several classes:
P5/6 girls – Kerry Wood 4th
S1 girls – Lucy Hart 16th
S3 boys – Angus Shaw 10th
His team (George Heriot’s School) came 2nd in this class.
S4 boys – Jamie Cunningham 2nd, Gavin Williams 8th
Their team (Stewart’s Melville College) came 2nd in this class.
S5/6 boys – Craig Nolan had a very good time but sadly missed a control
